What kind of fabric did you use? Lightweight 100% cotton pin dot shirting.
How did you decide to reflect your personal style in the pattern? I piped the waistline seams (hips and underbust) and sleeve hems with handmade white piping. I used self-covered buttons. Oh, and I made the inside pretty, too – finishing the facings with white bias tape and catchstitching the hem with pretty white lace.
What thoughts do you have about the project? I love this dress and I really enjoyed the process of making it. I plan on making another one with lightweight wool (crepe? maybe?) in a bright color and making a matching self-covered belt :)
