I decided to make a dress which would allow me to cope with the ‘in between’ temperatures of Dutch summer. Also, it was another challenge to my pattern making ambitions, creating a ‘regular’ shirt collar for the first time. I added pleats at the chest to add some volume there and puffy sleeves, just for fun.
