Lonsdale dress take 2
I made this dress for my Mum, I always love sewing for her (don't tell the Selfish Seamstress though, lol) because other than a petite adjustment she fits in to clothes straight off the pattern.
I made a size 12 with a 2" shortening of the bodice and a 4" hem shorten.
The fabric is a Cotton Poplin 50's remake from Spotlight.
Satin Piping around the waistband and bodice edge
Contrast sateen for the waistband
French seams down the sides and hong kong binding on the front and back seams
The bodice is lined with a stretch cotton poplin
I made another Lonsdale for her, just got to get around to hemming it and redoing the zipper and I'll post it up as well.
