I made this dress from an ADORABLE 2 yard quilting cotton with a bird print and some mustard yellow linen-look. I LOVE LOVE bird prints and mustard this year! Yellow is definitely the color of the year for me. I got the pattern from Butterick 5600. However, since it’s made of quilting cotton with interfacings in the middle button area, it’s a little too hot for where I live. I’m dying to get cooler so I can wear this with a cardigan!
And sorry for the bad picture!
Quilting cotton, 7 buttons, linen-look for contrast, interfacing in the neck and middle line, and elastic.
