Buttercup Oolong Tea Dress

My friend recommended this pattern to me as she thought it would suit me . I wasn’t initially drawn to it but I actually really love it . I love having a bright buttery yellow dress , and I love the vintage detailing on the neckline and the puff sleeves . I fully lined the dress with a silk like fabric which gives it a luxurious feel . Since I made it I feel like though it fits well through the bodice , I think i could do with narrowin the circumference of the skirt to make it more figure hugging .

Material Notes

Yellow printed cotton , Silky fabric for lining .
