Dress #1 for Tamara

I sewed several things for my daughter for Christmas. The first item was this dress.

I used this OOP Butterick pattern that I made for her before and she loved it.

The fabric is a rayon jersey. I doubled the bodice front and sewed down the  opening so it wouldn't gape  and I lined the skirt with tricot lining.. I left out the side zipper because the fabric had so much stretch.

As usual, I worried that the dress wouldn't fit but it did and very well too. Here's a peek at my darling daughter on her first day back at work after Christmas

I  have lots to show you but a sore neck is keeping me away from the computer except for short periods of time.
