Fabric:Seersucker  [See other projects in this fabric]
My daughter chose this pattern for a cool, cotton dress to wear to the Kentucky Derby. I decided to make a muslin since she doesn't live close for fittings. I used a piece of boxer short fabric from my stash of underwear remnants, thinking I would sew it up just enough to check the fit. It was turning out pretty cute so, after making a few minor adjustments, I finished it completely so that she could wear it. I used a red and white striped seersucker for her Derby dress and made a monogrammed bow for her hat. She told me the dress is very comfortable to wear and that she might need a few more for summer. I decided to add a zipper to the back of the second dress. It narrows in a bit at the hemline, making it a little difficult to get on and off. We call the muslim her "underwear dress" !
