Here's a partnership - Colette Peony and Pattern Magic Bamboo Shoot - in a lined cotton dress for summer.

The bodice folds needed a bit of work when I tested it. They're still a WIP. I wasn't 100% sure about the waist so I added the cumberbun with 3 pearl buttons.The front bodice came to a v point at the waist - unintentionally - based on the Pattern Magic istructions. That's been fixed. The dress is fully lined because the fabric is light weight cotton for a top or blouse.
I've added the bamboo shoot treatment to the sleeve, but I'm not sure this is good idea. This feature need editings. Sleeve or no sleeve?
The pattern change below shows you the sleeve treatment I'll try next. The pleats will fall from the sleeve head and not the sleeve hem.
The zipper was short so I've added a 3 button button closure to the back neckline.
Merry Christmas y'all. It's time for a break when there's a fish face pose.
