Natasha from the sewing blog NattyJaneSews made this summer-licious frock from Britex Fabrics Italian stretch cotton and 10/2010 Full skirted dress with cut-out bustline #116 (available as a print at home PDF.) Natasha is a self-taught seamstress, hails from Berkeley, and is featured in The BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook. She said she was instantly attracted to the vibrant color and subtle stripes of the watermelon sherbet fabric, and was surprised at how easy working with stretch cotton turned out to be. She loved how the fabric’s lycra accentuated the bodice fit. We think this dress is swell – perfect for riding San Francisco cable cars on a breezy summer day!
