Since I was so pleased with the piped neckline on my other day dress I decided to pipe the waist and neckline of this gown in a contrast fabric. The bodice is lined.
|The long sleeve has a tie and a button.|
The skirt is gathered to the bodice and the dress closes with more self-covered buttons.
The features of this dress make it more interesting that my other day dress and I like this one rather better; the fabric is less stiff which makes it nicer to wear. I wear this dress over my bodiced petticoat and a chemisette.
|A day (and a season of Burn Notice) later, I had a hand-trimmed bonnet. I finished at 2 in the morning|
