Description

Pullover denim mini dress with heart patch pocket. It’s made from a hybrid of 2 patterns: New Look 6022 (see my Cherry Blossom blouse in this pattern) for the top half and Built by Wendy 3835 for the bottom half. The fabric is relatively thin for denim and very comfortable. I topstitched most seams with traditional gold denim thread.

The pocket was something I added later b/c I thought it was a little too plain. (You can see in the photo where I’m modeling it there’s no pocket yet!)

      Thank you! I think this is a good transitional dress: you can wear it even before you reach your goal weight. Would be cute with leggings!
