Work told me not to bother coming in, as they will likely close early anyway because of the snow (eight inches and counting). Which gave me time to finish this lovely new sun-dress.
ooh, so summery
Made from a crisp light cotton from Hawaii (c.o. my step-mother, after many years in her stash) and some lightish cotton twill from the remainder bin. The bodice is lined with a white cotton broadcloth I had lying around. The pattern is a re-released vintage design I had been itching to try out.
love the original illustrations!
No real alterations needed, although I left out the neck strap interfacing and the featherlight boning in the bodice back.
