Dress 2 and 3 have twin needle stitched hems. Dress 3 is my favourite to wear, the others are very figure hugging on me and I am just not used to it.
Dress no. 1 - View B, cotton blend fabric with little stretch,
made as per pattern instructions
Dress no.2 - View B
a drapey knit by John Kaldor fabrics.
Dress no.3 - View B, a cotton knit.
This time I removed the shaping
at the waist by ruling straight from the underarm to the hip.
It is cool dress for hot days.

This is a classic easy to wear dress. The BurdaStyle range of dressmaking books are another source of classic patterns and are available with free postage from the Book Depository.
