Thank you for your kind compliment, Shirley! The dress is pale lavender cotton batiste and the slip is a medium lavender cotton broadcloth. After many days of interruption having to paint a house we're selling, I finally finished the slip. So other than needing ironing after being washed and dried, the outfit is ready for my DGD . Here's the dress with the slip underneath. You can see that the slip adds an extra boost of lavender color to the dress:



I think I "scooped" out the neckline and armscyes a bit too much in "re-drafting" of the pattern, but I was so afraid it wouldn't fit, especially under the arms. But it is simple and could be worn as a summer frock (although perhaps it might be too sheer?).



And Linda--You might recognize the lace edging around the slip hem . Thank you, again, for the generous gift of lace you sent to me last year!!



Now, I hope to be seeing what everyone else is/has made!!

Thank you, JoyL! Please do try this heirloom sewing! I just started four years ago and find that while it's not simple, it is easy! Plus, the ladies on this forum are THE BEST!! Everyone is patient and happy to share knowledge.

Thank you, Grammie!
