It finally feels like spring here (despite the occasional snowstorm…), so this is my spring dress! I turned the JJ pattern into a dress by extending the bottom into a skirt; I also omitted the ruffles. I had a ton of this swiss dot cotton left over from my apron project (I can’t resist sale fabric!) – it’s a little sheer but a slip underneath does the trick. I’m happy because I think this is one of the most wearable dresses I’ve made so far, and I feel like I’ve improved my sewing a lot compared to a year ago!
