Cotton Voile Crop Top + Dress

I bought this gorgeous cotton voile from The Fabric Store last year. Since then I have been saving it until I found a worthy pattern. Enter Yoshiko Tsukiori and her ‘Stylish Dress Book‘.

Box Crop Top

These two garments are made from the ‘Box Dress with Boat Neck’ pattern (minus the pockets) gracing the front cover of this book. I first made this dress in a tartan cotton as a practice run. When I did make it up in the cotton voile I altered the neckline, added french seams and used binding around the neckline instead of facing. Now, all I need to do is make a slip so I can wear my dress out!
