Woodside, New Yo...
I used leftover fabric from my quilting projects and some thrifted mystery fabric that looks like very lightweight denim. Drafted my own pattern with a sack dress as a base. It’s a super easy project. All I did was slash the front of the dress at a slant and attach the three fabric panels. I think I spent more time choosing the fabrics than actually sewing it!! The addition of pockets make this a very functional dress which, I have a feeling, I’ll be wearing a lot this summer :-)
