The pattern is Vintage Vogue V8789. I have made it up with a slightly less full skirt, using 2 skirt panels instead of 4. However this makes it much more wearable every day. Again I love a slash style neck. Although doing a v neck version is tempting. This pattern has the lovely fabric loops and buttons I have used in tops before. It was lovely to make a full dress of this pattern this time instead of just the top.
The Liberty Tana Lawn is cool and crisp to wear perfect for this hot climate. However I have worn a slip with this dress as the cotton is quite sheer otherwise.
