I don’t think I’ve posted about this yet — it’s a hybrid Frankendress of Liberty Schlesinger (which I’ve used before and still think looks like a cricket-ball print) with the bodice from Simplicity 2452 and the same skirt (only deeper pleats) as this dress (Simplicity 5238). Okay, that was confusing. Perhaps the pictures will make it easier:
Here’s the (added) side pockets and side zipper:
The deep back pleat in the skirt:
The collar (you can see the mustardy bias tape I used to finish it — probably should have used gray. (It matched more in my head.)
I used the Fashion Incubator method on this collar, and it rolled really nicely at the edge:
I made this three different times early this spring but I suppose I never got around to posting them? A search doesn’t turn anything up. I have pictures of the other two as well, so I’ll try to get them up soon.

So cute. I especially love the deep pleat in the back… it’s so flattering when worn!
And that yellow bias tape adds such a fun pop of color, in a retro way… I wouldn’t worry about it matching perfectly!
Erin, you did a great job on that zipper, it really is invisible. Nice looking dress all around.
I like the deep pleats too. The collar looks wonderful, collars intimidate me, though. Sewing them, that is.
Pockets and a side zipper and a frankenpattern! And the result is very cute ….. Thanks for the link about the collar, which I’ll investigate. And I agree about the cricket balls ☺️
