This is quite a basic sheath dress and I decided to make it in some of my bargain stretch cotton twill fabric. There is very little to say about the construction honestly. I cut a size 40 and then basted the side seams until I was happy with the fit. I should have done the same with the sleeves as they are a little tight on me. My fabric was stretchy enough that I didn't need to add the split at the back seam.

There are no facings, instead the dress is lined to the edge. I lined just the bodice with a scrap of printed cotton. If I'd had enough fabric I would have just drafted a neck facing I think, it feels odd lining such a casual fabric even though the dress looks quite...dressy!
