I have no idea where I am with challenges…so I made a summer dress, never mind that it was 42º this morning, some day it will warm up and I'll be ready!

I like this! Plain, simple and elegant (with the unexpected bright spot of the lining)

Dear Cathe,

Does the pattern show you how to include the lining or you figured the lining part yourself? I have been wondering how to sew the zipper which is enclosed in the lining, is that handstitched? You have to show me. Love, love this dress.

So pretty and it even matches the hanger!
Sertyan: I don't know how Cathe did it but here is a tutorial for invisible zippers in lined clothing:

I want that!  Love everything about it!

Thank you so much, you all are so kind and encouraging!

Sertyan I always refer to Colette's tutorial on invisible zippers: http://www.coletterie.com/tutorials-tips-tricks/tutorial-installing...

The pattern does show you how to work the lining. I hand sewed it along the edge of the zipper, but I'm a fan of hand sewing which I know many people don't enjoy, I think it could be machine sewn as well.

The outer fabric is a blend of linen and silk and the lining is a cotton voile. So outer is mid weight and lining super light weight.
