Description

I have been dying to sew anything and was waiting for our spring break so I could make an Easter Dress. I found a cute yellow dress on line, can’t remember where I saw it, just saved the photo to " things i want to make folder". I used a cheap and easy pattern by Butterrick B5546, and refashioned it to look more like the dress. Over all I like how it came out just wish the spots that I didn’t line were more sheer. The fabric wasn’t sheer enough. Could not upload picture of dress that inspired me :( sorry?

    Gorgeous dress! I think your rendition is even better than the first (not the biggest fan of wearing yellow, myself—but love it in the home).

    If you are interested, I’d love to have you write a guest post for my blog about finding inspiration in pre-made clothing and then finding the time/the resources to begin to make your own version of it.

    Have a wonderful day! Hope to hear from you soon :)

    Very pretty – I like the pleats from under the shoulder yoke. Suits you too!
