New Look 6123

This is New Look 6123 in a stretch cotton sateen from Spotlight.  I bound the neckline and armholes in purchased bias binding, but didn't cut off the seam allowance first, so the neckline sits a bit 'proud' and the shoulders appear a little extended, if you know what I mean.  This is view D, without the little cap sleeves.  

It might have been a bit of a waste doing the flounce in the busy fabric; it blends in, which defeats the purpose of a flounce, really.  I shall have to hold it up and show everyone, and tell them "I have a flounce!"  People who know me will not be at all surprised at such an exclamation.

Spotlight have had beautiful stretch cotton sateen lately, and this is one of them. Love it! Keep on flouncing that flounce...J

What a great dress. I rarely find fabric at Spotlight - might have to rethink that - cotton sateen is perfect for dresses.

Keep rocking and rolling and that flounce will bounce. Lovely dress that looks like a lot of fun.
