Spring flower dress!

Really digging this dress in this fickle spring weather. It’s really lightweight but has longer sleeves which help keep me from getting too chilly.
This dress is also a first for me in a couple of ways… it’s my first dress with sleeves, my first dress using gathering and my first dress finished using my new serger!
I used Polynesian Patterns 190 and a lightweight printed cotton. Didn’t stray too much from the original pattern except for shortening the dress into a mini-dress (also because I’m only 5’2). I also top-stitched the back facing down because it wasn’t staying on the inside of the dress.
