Description

I liked the Mary #6042 pattern from this site, but I wanted to make it a little more my style. I changed the criss-cross back into a halter, and added an exposed zipper in the back. For the skirt, I cut two rectangles, gathered, and sewed them to the bodice.

This is such a perfect little summer dress!

    This is really pretty, I love the contrast of the exposed chunky zipper with the girly floral fabric.

    I’m insanely prolific. I can churn out two dresses a day if I want. :) Thanks, I was actually going for like a 1990s look as soon as I spotted this fabric in the store.

    Love the exposed zipper and the fabric that you used! Reminds me a 1990s babydoll dress. By the way, I’m in awe of how quickly you sew things!!!
