I am sharing this pattern to on line sewing enthusiasts.
(Inner panel suppose to be one piece, due to fabric limitation, it was sewn together using 3 pieces of fabrics)

I am sharing some pictures I took while constructing this dress .
Comes with simple sewing instructions
Fabric is heavy. It drapes down and pull the dress longer.
If use fabric not very stretchy, this dress will end up too short.
Mark and Pin prepare to sew on the inner panel.
The dress is heavy and pull down the arm hold and made it too big. I threaded a thin cord to hold the arm hole stable. Using a hair pin.
Sew on the inner panel.
The Instruction in the book calls for top stitch to secure the inner panel. I used serger.
Shoulder seams were sewn as above. Folded to make a twist.
Enjoy your sewing!
