Looks like azelea but isn't!

This is one of those things you start and then leave sitting around for a year or so before you suddenly get the urge to go back and finish what you started.
It looks like Azelea but isn’t, it also looks a lot like one of Satomi’s dresses, so much for originality, I think I must have been subconsiously influenced by Burdastyle all along.
I used my ‘magic seams’ technique for the top part to get a perfect finish.

Material Notes

cotton, cotton and more cotton for the lining.
no zipper, 2 decorative brass buttons.

    It’s a special way of sewing seams inside out so that when you turn the thing the right way all seams are hidden! You can find it in my techniques ‘magic seams’ http://beta.burdastyle.com/techniques/magic-seams-reversible

    It reminds me very much of Satomi’s dress – I loved that one too. Please tell me what is the ‘magic seams’ technique? Sounds like something I should know.
