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.
