I finished a new dress. Its made of cotton seersucker using Laughing Moon Pattern 126.

I made some design choices.

First, seersucker isn’t really a fashionable fabric in Europe, but is documented in runaway ads and is a completely suitable fabric for the American South and the Caribbean due to the weave allowing for airflow next to the skin.

Second, I made 3/4 sleeves and added little buttonholes to slip my ties through. It is ankle length so suitable for a day dress or a work dress.
