Description

Nothing like a flowery dress to match for the romantic trip we were planning… I was really trying to finish it in time, but it tuned out to be quite time consuming and my sweet and patient BF had to wait and play games on his phone while I was still sewing it on the morning of the trip. we ended up 4 hours late but it was worth it!

Material Notes

Super comfy jersey. My BF couldn’t stop touching it :-)

      thank you so much! Now it’s too hot here for this dress, but a few months ago I wore it all the time. it’s very comfortable.
      It does take a bit of work though, but I think the result worth it. The sleeves are a bit tricky. I wish I took some photos when I made it cause it took me a while to figure it out. In short, you would have to pinch the bottom corner of the sleeve to make them fit. Good luck and I can’t wait to see the result!

    As usual super chic… I love the fabric style and colors – where did you find it? It fits the pattern so well. Looks amazing.

    i know this trying-to-finish-it-in-time situation. i made a shirt for my BF to wear to a wedding and it stayed home without buttonholes while we went on our trip. 4 months later i finished it :) your dress looks lovely on you.
