I originally made this dress to wear to a Quincenera, but I didn’t end up wearing it there so now it is just another fun summery dress in my collection! I actually made this in a couple hours the night before, using the pattern from my lace dress I made. The floral silky fabric was a 1/2 yd remnant I found at Joanns for about $3.75. The top is of yellow shantung that I had leftover, It has a light blue satin lining and deep violet satin seam binding on the inside. I used a simple 12 in black zipper on the back. I styled this with my new Black Oxford Heels that I absolutely love, I got them at Dressbarn, they were initially $39.99 but I got them on sale for only $12.99!
