It has a square neckline, inverted box pleats, and an invisible zipper... and the interior is completely finished, no raw edges! I love doing that.
My challenge this time was to make it fully finished while inserting a zipper without any hand-stitching. That's right, even the buttons are sewn by machine. The only part I'm not really happy with is the stitching that finishes the lining edge... I didn't sew slowly enough and the stitching is visible where I don't want it to be. That, and the bodice seam in the back doesn't line up perfectly across the zipper, but it isn't super noticeable.
I used bias tape to finish the edges in the back below the zipper, and the side seams are French-ed.
Ready for a boatload of pictures?
