|Notes||This pattern is such a nice one, and so comfortable to wear, that I have made another version. This is a medium weight cotton (I think it is a craft/quilting weight) from the Liberty "Bloomsbury Collection", which uses prints from the 1930's. Lining is a plain white Egyptian Cotton (Empress Mills). The navy blue trimming is bias tape cut from some polka dot fabric I was given in the early 1980's, which I never knew what to make with - I cut the bias strips so the fabric showing on the finished dress did not have the white polka dots on it, very pleased to make use of something from my old fabric stash!
Dress is a little creased on my pictures, I had been wearing it all day.
Made from 2m of 115cm fabric, which was enough to also cut a 10cm hem facing.
