As I found last time I made this dress, it's very quick and east to put together. I did struggle with the collar again and I'm beginning to think it's the pattern and not me! Still, I think it came out very well and I'm going to wear it to my Lindy Hop lesson I'm taking this weekend!
I didn't add the pockets as I thought they would break up too much of the pattern. The rikrac, though, is great and I find it very helpful for tidying up my seams! I more than doubled the number of buttons used as the last dress I made had a tendancy to gape. As I'll be wearing this as a dress and not a housedress, I thought the more buttons the better!
