I love this bodice pattern because it's so simple but so satisfying. This time around, I made it with straps that tie into bows at the shoulders and inserted a strip of white piping between the bodice and skirt!

The fabric is red sateen. It's really easy to sew with and doesn't require lining (though the bodice is fully lined).

My one criticism of this dress is that the ties shouldn't be quite so long, and I wish I had a made a fuller skirt. But overall, I'm quite happy with it

Thanks for looking!

What a sweet looking summer dress!  Not JUST for summer of course...
Well done Smiley

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.
