Oh this is so pretty-very fresh and springy! This has been on my short list for a long time and you are definitely making me want to move it up. I also like your bias binding instead of lining.

Pretty! I probably wouldn't have given this pattern a second glance, but after seeing this on your daughter, I may have to reconsider. Fits her perfectly! Great idea of the binding for the armholes and neckline. Beautiful fabric choice :)

I really do love the fabric choice. I've seen this pattern before and never thought much of it, but now, I think I might have to pick it up.

Great dress. Did you point out to your daughter that next time she should tell you about the pocket in advance?

Love the apt for spring....could I ask where did you get the fabric from?

ChristmasHills said...
Mitalik it is just from the local fabric store here in Australia - Spotlight. There are lots of lovely cotton sateens around this year I have noticed. This particular one has lycra in it so it has a little bit of give.
