Historical Sew Monthly Challenge #7: Fashion Plates

What do you do when your original challenge entry falls through leaving you with a week and a half until the deadline? Turn on Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries and make an afternoon frock.

I chose a simple fashion plate from the March 1925 issue of Needlework Magazine. I've also challenged myself to use fabrics from my stash, and this month Mount Fabric yielded a lovely white dimity with bunches of lilacs on it.
