I don't think I've ever been this excited about a dress I've made πŸ’– I've been checking the weather forecast every day to see when it's warm enough for this one. I think it's is going to be my favourite dress to wear this summer!
The fabric is super swishy (read: flimsy), so the full skirt doesn't have much body to it, but it moves beautifully! I underlined the whole bodice to give it more structure and prevent my bra from peeking through the white panels πŸ˜…

Fitting the bodice was a bit of a challenge (I made 6 muslins!), also due to my poor choice in pattern sizes. I've learned *so* much during the process from the lovely people in the #B6453 Sewalong Facebook group. After that, putting it together was a breeze, especially with the detailed instructions on @gertie18 's blog.
Overall, I'm super happy with this dress and I think I'm going to make many more versions of it. I did end up getting the smaller sizes envelope as well, though, and I think I'll try sz. 12 with a FBA next and compare it to my current frankensteined sz. 14 :D

Oh, AND it has pockets! ✨
