I used this pattern, which was supposed to be some kind of silky evening dress and made a pinafore dress with it.
My dummy's complete lack of ribs doesn't show the dress to its best advantage, but I'm ill and look like crap right now, so I'm not going to take a photo of it on. The bodice is lined with the same fabric, and I covered the seams with bias binding.
Here's a closeup of the fabric. I got it at John Lewis.
