I’m in the mood for summer. Which also means I’m in the mood to wear summer dresses. Which also means I’m ready to start sewing summer dresses like a crazy person. This is my first summer dress project for the year. I made it from $1 thrift store curtains, a 25 cent zipper and a package of 25 cent piping. Thank you local thrift store! I whipped up a basic bodice pattern and then piped the seams…and then added one of the curtain panels as the skirt. EASY! Took me an hour, tops.
