I love the port elizabeth top by seagle. I used a fabric I bought in the sale and extended the pattern at the bottom of the top to make it into a dress. I also made the skirt part a bit wider. I had some trouble getting the bottom straight to begin with (at first the sides were longer than the middle, and when I cut the sides, I seemed to have a triangle-shape hanging in the middle), so I just did it by eye in the end. I will try and get better photos uploaded, just was too excited to wait when I finished sewing it. Hope you like it.
What do you think of these summery styles?
