Sweet & Sassy Dress

A simple little dress ready for shopping at the flea market or lunch with the girls. I wanted to add bias tape but wasn’t happy with the colors I saw at the store so I just used the fabric for its own piping. It’s fitted but not tight and I’m pleased with the neckline.

There wasn’t really a pattern I used for this dress.

Another precious child of a dress to add to my growing dress family.

2 yards cotton, thread, 22 in zipper

    I really like this! I wish you had used a pattern so I could make one too! Nice fabric and the belt looks lovely.

      Thank you. The neckline is not low but it is well suited for a great collarbone.

      Thank you. I’m glad you like the fabric. Sometimes I second guess my choices.
