It closely resembles the Lekala dress I made last year, except being a bit more fitted and having a key-hole neckline instead of a pleated one.

Navy Elise blouse

I figured out that the Elise blouse pattern by Rosie and me deserved a second chance. In the first blouse the neckline was too revealing, so this time I needed to change that. Fortunately, lovely Esther at Rosie and me made a tutorial on how to do just that…

1940s tea dress by Sew Over It

I got this fabric from Artenio at the same time with the mustard yellow one for this Amelia dress. It took me quite some time to decide on the pattern. I did not have a lot of fabric so many dresses with their circle skirts were unfortunately out of question…
