Retro Orange Basic Dress

Added Jan 20, 2009

I bought this orange fabric to play with and to add color to my wardrobe and ended up making a dress out of it. My second time trying to make a dress without a pattern and this one came out fairly well. Now I just need to find an excuse to wear it.

    Me too! Except – I think I will steal the idea! ;-) Great job on not using a pattern too – it looks so good!

    I love the model of this dress. Those two buttons in the back are a cute detail. You really don’t need an excuse to wear such a lovely dress. :)
