Pink-a-boo

Any other followers of Project Sewn out there? When I started following this season, I realized I had sewn, was sewing or in the planning stages of something that fit each of the 4 challenges. This week was PINK and I had a dress already on my cutting table. It started as a navy and white fabric with open cut work, which I decided to back in fuchsia pink. The pink peeks out and the combination looks like a floral print of one solid fabric.

I used my favorite bodice, (yes, for the third time already this year) which is a combination of two Vogue patterns.

Then added a skirt from Butterick 5285, view B, but inverted the pleats in the opposite direction of what is shown on the pattern.
