A nice summer dress

 This was a vintage voile fabric that I had in my stash. It was only 36" wide so I had to put a steam in the front to get the width of the front of the dress. I shorten the pattern 2". I lengthen the sleeves and then was able to turn them up and sew a button at the top of the fold.
 I like the ruffle in the back. I lined the dress with a white muslin. I found some old buttons that my Mother had saved and it gave it a nice detail.
