I am loving this little dress. I made it in the lightest cotton voile in chartreuse and lime green. You can make it in one color of course, instructions include details on either. Pattern includes bodice pattern, and then follow the instructions for cutting out the skirt panels, which are basically rectangles.
Eileen is unique in arm placement and gathers. Measure the bodice length and then your own body to see where it sits. If you prefer it to be higher or lower, just adjust the length to your preference.
Where Eileen in warm weather as is, with or without pants or leggings. In cooler weather a long sleeve ‘T’ and pants or leggings with boots.
