I was very pleased with the previous version of this dress and as I am currently “into” Green I have completed a new “Birthday” dress using this pattern and some very Green printed cotton that I bought from Franklins, Salisbury branch.
There is not much to say about the construction. I again used my TNT bodice pattern with the self-lined cap sleeves. There is a lapped zip in the centre back seam and all seam allowances have been overlocked.
Back view with lapped zip insertion
The hem is a ½ ” machined in place with a single row of top stitching. The Bright Blue elasticated belt that I made recently matches up quite well with the print and so I am good to go and twirl!
