When I purchased this fabric for some reason I was under the impression that the fashion fabric design was fans – I’ve now realised that they are shells, so it really had to be a summer holiday dress.
The bodice joins with a princess seam and then you have two pleats at the waist back and front as well as at the sides (in which you incorporate side pockets) this took a few attempts to do with the instructions non to helpful. The facings also join the lining fabric which I thought I would have problems but actually they matched quiet well. A conceal zip is at the centre back.
