This is the first time I have used the luscious lawn fabric and it didn’t disappoint! I used the Elisalex bodice (once again), an elbow length sleeve and a full gathered skirt to create this 50s style dress.

Looking at the picture above, I think the silhouette would be better emphasised with a petticoat. Another to add to the list!

I love the way that the rose print disguises the princess seams even though it would have been impossible to match up the print.
