I used navy blue poly cotton and white bias (although I realized in the sunlight its actually cream!) binding. I also have wooden buttons. Although if I find some nice gold ones I will use those.
In addition to the basic dress I made some additions and alterations.
Bias binding on the hem
Or piping on the waistline
Pleats in the skirt (to allow for movement)
A cute bow (to cover up the join in the piping.)
Its came together fairly quickly…..I had enough left over to make a matching bow for my hair.
