|Test dress for fit.|
It was this beach Eliana that forced me to make my convertible bra, so 'it's all good'...
Fluoro prints aren't my first choice but this print is certainly a great play on LBD.
The rayon fabric is soft and not see-through (yay). I should have bought more...
Pauline has added pockets that are sewn into the waistband so the pockets don't drag the skirt down. The only change I made to the pockets was to shorten them by 5cm and I've used this pocket pattern for a future make.

The Autumn version has shortened sleeves (8cm) and adjusted the sleeve dart for forward shoulders for the Autumn version.

I spent a fair bit of time making the gathers on the neckline even. You can see the stitching and a bit of hand stitching to keep the gathers in place during sewing.
It's nice having a warmer dress from the same pattern.
