The Gingham Dress

Well I have been very slow to put up pictures of this dress i finished two weeks ago!! but here they are,
I used a Vintage Vogue repro pattern. It was really an easy pattern to sew, i had a few hiccups along the way though. I got distracted and attached boning to both bodice front and lining instead of only bodice back and if i made this again i would probably make a muslin as i think the bodice is about a cm too long, but oh well it didn't turn out too bad!! Luckily the weather is still warm and sunny here, Autumn weather hasn't arrived just yet!! So I am still able to pull out the sundresses for a bit longer! :-)
