Frock in Floral

The Fabric is a floral and lace printed chiffon perfect for Project Sewn's Floral Frenzy challenge. 
As part of my MMM goals I was intent on finishing a few UFOs. This chiffon frock from a out of print pattern Simplicity 2965 was part of my quest. I finished the dress and decided it was the perfect print to  wear for Mother's Day.
I was obliged to work so my celebration did not include anything special. I did however receive the sweetest card from my love. 

I flat lined the chiffon to a buff colored satin to opaque the fabric and add structure. The internal seams were overlocked to finish. For the gathered lower skirt the lining was free hanging.

  1. Very pretty dress, I like the cut of the dress and as always your fit is perfect. Great job.

  2. Such a pretty dress! I love the neck line and the print of the fabric :) Adorable!

  3. Beautiful dress, clean finish - love it!

  4. So pretty! Love that you work with so many fabrics so successfully!

  5. Oooh, very, very pretty! Well worth the effort, and I'm sure there was a lot of effort involved. Slippery fabric no doubt, and flat lining, and finishing, and...a perfect fit in the end. You look stunning!

  6. Fabulous dress. Well done with the chiffon, you've tamed it well.

  7. Gorgeous! and wonderful work with the chiffon. You've inspired me to do something with the 6 yds of chiffon I've been sitting on for 2 years - had not thought to underline it the way you did. Thanks!

  8. It is very pretty!! Love the colors, and it looks great on you.
