I haven't had a new dress in quite awhile! Last summer I only made shorts and read a bunch of books so this summer I'm trying to focus on adding new dresses into my wardrobe. They are so easy to wear in the summer heat and I need more in my rotation.
This is the third time I've made the Christine Haynes Sylvie dress. Once I find something that works I stick with it! I like the somewhat relaxed fit, gathered skirt and big pockets. I chose the Cotton + Steel rayon fabric before I decided which pattern to pair it with and the Sylvie came up the winner.
I underlined the bodice with a simple white cotton and lined the skirt with the same.
