Yes, Bonnie123. This is completely wrong for the northern hemisphere at this time of the year. I am writing from Singapore where its cool from monsoonal rains right now so I wear a shrug over the dress to keep warm. I am never known to sew seasonally appropriate clothing anyhow. Stay warm!

Nice....obviously you are outside of the States to wear a dress so beautiful during this time of the year! :)

Thank you for your kind comments everyone. ggf2005 What I used was an invisible actually and I am not the best at attaching those even with the foot. I get mixed results. Sometimes they turn out well, sometimes they don't. Am working on this. crwritt I used the poly as it was the only thing I had handy and also somehow loving the feel of satin rather than batiste. I do need to learn to match my fabrics better especially with the linings and get some more suitable ones too.FreyaStark Phahurat left me with lovely memories. I was a little dumbstruck with the ready availability of affordable but pretty fabric.

A lovely dress, and an excellent use of that fabric. It looks great without the belt. Isn't Phahurat wonderful?

I like how your dress came out, love a border print and they're so hard to come by. I'm wondering why you would line a cotton dress with polyester?

I love your dress, the border print looks amazing. If you don't have the concealed/invisible zipper (manufacturer's metal foot) foot for your machine, I highly recommend investing in one. You will never want to use regular zippers again because they go in so much quicker and neater! I bought the two that fit my Viking and I use invisible zippers almost exclusively.
