Things I learned whilst making this dress: stay-stiching, new lining technique, chain stitch to hold lining together, bias tape method from Coletterie. And lastly, but not least, 100% cotton dresses wrinkle... a lot.

Things to improve on pattern: waistline, (A) armholes, (B) neckline. I failed to see the armhole and neckline problems because I was so focused on the waistline issues. ((Ah, poodle-snaps)). Forest for the trees I guess. At least the waist looks good, right? Maybe?
