I read this blog the other day, loved the pussy bow dress and when I saw that she had done a tutorial on how to add lining I knew what I was going to make next.
There are two things I love: Liberty fabric and a pussy bow and so voila, we have it: my October resolution project. I bought this fabric from Addicted to Fabric back in July so it will finally emerge from the stash and I'll use the same SALME pattern , with the lining tutorial. I've never done a dress with lining and the Liberty of London fabrics which I often use for dresses really do need lining, so perfect.

Now to my revelation: By accident I found this post on how to make a continuous strip of binding (5 yards out of a fat quarter). I didn't quite have a fat quarter left so just used a ratio to work out the measurements..and it worked!! And it was fun (ish)! Funny I won't now need it for the armholes as the dress will be lined - but there is always a use for binding!!
