here from the Village Haberdashery, along with the fabric which is a floaty double gauze called Little Letter by Nani Iro. The contrast yoke is Kona solid in Rose (yes nicked a smidge from my Pervalong bundle - but it went so nicely!).
My daughter is a bit of a skinny minnie so I added side ties to sort out any skinny waist problems. I will definitely be making another one of these dresses so on my paper pattern I am going to adjust the yoke inwards a little to make it skinnier too. The nicest parts of this pattern - curiously the parts I had been sceptical about before I started - are the braided shoulder straps and the button loop detail on the front yoke. They really are very pretty little details.
This is the first time I have sewed with double gauze but I definitely will do again - it is easy to sew - not slippy as I had feared - and has such beautiful drape.
