I did not have much time to sew this week after painting the house but I did manage to sew this dress. I used the same patterns from my Rainy Day Summer Dress. I really liked this fabric and bought 4 meters and now I have 3 meters left to figure out what else to sew with it. I did make a few changes – to the bodice I added ruching because the fabric ended up being too loose even though it was exact same cut as last time. I did not add the ruffle sleeves and I serged the hem and neck line. This is a cool summer dress for me to wear around the house.
