Notes Vintage yellow gingham.
Fully lined with self fabric and lawn.
River stone buttons.

Around 4 1/2 hours sewing time (plus hand sewing hem)

I got in rather a muddle sewing this one. I tried to use the original instructions whilst dropping in a lining and it didn't work well. Next time I will construct the bodice, then the skirt and then burrito the two together.

Lidia was thrilled with this dress and had requested many more gingham versions. She wore it on a date paired with a denim jacket and white sand shoes.

*For some reason, my version ended up being double breasted, I will trim the front back for out next version*

Lots of pictures to show the insides. I hope it is helpful.

    Thank you Maria, Jane and Désirée, although a tricky sew, it was well worth it. Lidia is wearing it frequently.

    Lovely dress, Lidia looks beautiful in this.
    The lining makes this look professional and good quality.

  • Jane Riebe

    A+ on the construction. The gingham fabric and shorter length gives it a more youthful look. Really nice!
