She looks pleased with the latest creation from Salon Muv, a copy of her favourite green dress which we bought in Bath a while ago.
I decided it was time to get over my lining phobia. The dress is lined throughout, so it shouldn't be one of those annoying cotton skirts that rides up or flies away in the wind.
The key to getting the fit was the bodice. I drew the neckline and armholes by laying the green dress flat on the table, jotting down the measurements, and then drawing directly onto the old duvet cover that I used for the toile.
The fiddliest part of the bodice was making and attaching the bias binding around the armholes.
The joy of this dress is that there are no darts, zips, buttons, buttonholes - no real shaping or openings, just elastic around the waist.
We are both pleased with how it has turned out. My daughter likes it so much she has already chosen the material for the next one.
