I used the Partly Sunny Frock pattern for the skirt and kind of stuck the two parts of the bodice and yoke together to estimate a new bodice for this. There was a little extra fabric at the front collar so I put two small pleats there (though you can’t see them on the photo really). Really pleased how this came out – it was only my second sewing project (the original partly sunny frock was my first).

      Thanks a lot! The stretch i the fabric definitely helps with fit. My third dress wasn’t quite as successful when I used a cotton with no ‘give’!

      Thanks! And I’m a bit of a freak regarding how many shoes I have. I buy very cheap ones and in plenty of different colours but they set off the outfit and no on can realise they weren’t pricy!

      Thanks so much! I was really delighted with it. The fabric is gorgeous and with a bit of stretch. I live in Rwanda so fabric like that it hard to come by (though plenty of African cotton types, just normally not much with any stretch).
