Yui Kokeshi tunic / dress with yoke

I'm really into the 60's styling just now, so I tested my pattern drafting abilities on making a yoked dress with one of my favourite fabrics, Yui Kokeshi by Alexander Henry. I'm really pleased with how it turned out, and did big girl things like facings. Steven said it was 'interesting' so I punished him by trying it on Jamie (he hates the cross-dressing). Jamie didn't mind, as he got a biscuit. Before accusations of child-abuse ensue, it is research, as I wanted to see what size it would fit up to so I can better grade it to different sizes.
