Handmade Simplicity 6409 in Lotta Jansdotter Cotton

Here's the second piece I made for The Tin Thimble's fashion show. It's a vintage pattern, Simplicity 6409 to be exact, and new Lotta Jansdotter fabric. I lined the bodice and finished all the seams with bias tape and flat-fell seams. I think the bows, faux sweetheart neckline and sweet shape make it just girlie enough to satisfy me, but the neutral color print and practicality tone it down to make it something I will wear quite often.
