I am just getting into sewing clothes and I am working on this pattern right now. I wanted to do a full lining like you did but I have only done a full lining on a stretchy dress without a zipper and no sleeves, and it had directions in the pattern. This one is different because of the sleeves and the zipper. Could you possibly give me some more details on how you did the lining? It came out beautifully.

Amanda, don't know how I missed this when you first reviewed it--your construction is impeccable as always!! Beautiful dress and love how the stripe shows off the details.

Meredith - I did apply the interfacing directly to the lining fabric. Good luck with your version!

I just love this dress and promptly went out and got the pattern. Did you apply the interfacing to the dress, or to the lining? It's a great idea and needs to be done, but I wanted to pick your (expert) brain on this one. Thanks!

Your dress is beautiful. I have looked at this pattern and it is for sure on my fall to do list now.

Nice job! Can't wait to see it on you! I just finished sewing my 'wearable muslin' of this same dress. Isn't it fun and easy??

This is also on my to-sew list (same view) as I loved all those cute details. You did a beautiful job on the construction, & it will be nice to see a photo of you wearing it once you are able to! Excellent result!
