I used the same bodice pattern as with the white fern dress, but I left of the neckline borders and made the neckline gathered instead. The sleeves are 3/4 length and I used my 18th century pattern for them. The dress closes with 4 hooks and thread loops, a tape tie underbust and a gathering ribbon on the neckline. Simple as you please.
I might embroider the dress later, but it works as it is. I like the lightness of it and I'm going to wear it to the Gustavian Day picnic we're having in my town next Saturday.
Here are some photos of the dress with all my fabulous hats :)
