Modern floral dress

This is the second time I’ve made this pattern. I just love the deep scoop neck and the sweet shoulder sleeves. This pattern works so wonderfully with quilting weight cotton, which is why I’ve made it again. I had to make a few mods to get the fit right, but it was so worth it. I moved the zipper to the back and added in-seam side pockets for practical reasons.

I also made a cute belt from a scrap of cotton sateen that was inspired by a vintage pattern in my stash. I’ll probably put a tutorial on my blog this week if you’d like one too.

I love this dress so much, that if I could, I’d marry it!!!

This project is based on 02/2011 Dress with A-line skirt and shoulder sleeves
