This is a photo of the first version (kind of a trial run) of the project I'm planning for Farmhouse Fabrics next year. The cotton batiste underdress/slip could stand alone with a sash as a beach type dress of it could take on a very formal look worn under a velveteen or corduroy dark colored a-line jumper. I love the look of it paired with the smocked floral cotton lawn jumper.
The smocked jumper slips on over the head but has plenty of tricky construction points with all the piped, curved, French bias bound edges. The underdress/slip, as mentioned in my earlier post, includes lots of 1/8" tucks, Swiss and French laces, and a cotton netting collar.
I can't wait to start on the real deal - all ivory laces paired with my personal favorite fabric to sew on - Liberty Tana Lawn. The print I have chosen to use is from their classic collection and is called 'Bourton'.
