I was invited to a tea party with instructions to wear a colorful dress, which meant, of course, I had to make a new one for the occasion. 😉
I chose Butterick 5603, and found just enough of the polka dot fabric to make the bodice, and paired it with a matching teal.
The bodice was a bit of a brain teaser, just because each piece looked so similar, it was a bit tricky to keep straight what was the front, back, left, or right! But I managed eventually. 🙂
All my raw seams were encased in rayon binding, which took a bit of time with all those skirt panels! But it’s worth it.
I certainly recommend the pattern, I really love the shape of the skirt! More pics and details on my blog here.
