Description

My friend Emma is graduating from high school this year and has been searching high and low for the perfect white dress. A few weeks ago she saw me in church wearing a homemade dress and asked if I would make her a similar one in white cotton. Of course I was more than happy to so a set to work right away and come up with this dress and hair bow to go along with it. I’m modeling it in these pictures because we’re similar sizes, but I hope to get pictures of her wearing it at graduation on Friday. (:

      This pattern came from the BurdaStyle Sewing Handbook, but I get my other patterns from thrift shops and the internet mostly (:

    The dress is really cute! I like the tag, I added a “made with love” tag for a dress that I gave my friend too :)
