What materials did you use? Cotton matelasse and Bemberg rayon for lining.

What are you most proud of? I suppose I'm proud to have stepped out of my comfort zone -- which is to always wear black or black! The yellow is a bit vivid -- do I look like a bowl of scrambled eggs in this? Or maybe a buttercup? At any rate, I took a deep breath and wore it yesterday and got lots of compliments on it. Apparently, vivid colors are all the rage this year.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is an easy pattern, well-drafted and goes together nicely. I rarely make anything without a lining so I would definitely recommend lining it.

Cissie, I'm trying to find the pattern you used for this dress, but can't locate the number. Which is it? Totally agree with comment above. Very Jackie Kennedy. I just love it.

The pattern is New Look 6909, a favorite of mine!

This is gorgeous and looks somewhat like the dress Duchess Kate wore - the undersleeve was white and the bottom panel was white - this pattern could easily adapt. Love New Look - you did a great job - thanks for sharing.
