Mountain View, A...
Hancock’s had a sale on this brand of fabric. So I bought all they had left of these two prints and put them together to make this apron-shaped dress. It criss crosses in the back (kind of like overalls) with two buttons. Pleats are a little imperfect, because I started cutting the fabric at 12 am, and realized it was the wrong size pattern. I just did some math and readjusted. (Math after midnight is never a good idea!) It turned out cute anyway.
1/2 yd of one print cotton, 2 yds of another print cotton (for skirt)
2 buttons and a 7 in. zipper
(or I used another button in place of a zipper because I hate zippers).
