Long Summer Dress

Added Jul 9, 2008

by treeedom

Bay Area, Califo...






This was a pattern and I used the bottom of Dress A of the pattern and the top of Dress C/D of the pattern. My guy picked out the print and I love it to death. The photos were taken on a trip to Todos Santos in Mexico a few months ago.

    Thanks for the wonderful comments everyone. It’s funny, I had wore this dress to the Zoo in S.D. and this young girl came up to me and asked where I got the dress from. When I told her I had made it, she seemed so bummed…I felt bad!!

    I’d love to know what patterns you used—it’s so hard to find patterns for long summer dresses that aren’t frumpy-looking, and this one is completely the opposite of frumpy. Nice work!
