Christine Haynes Sylvie Dress #3

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.
The pockets and middle panel have piping added to them, although the fabric is so busy you can't really see it.

On to the next dress!
