This fabric was a Christmas present from my husband a couple of years ago, and it was finally transformed into a simple summer dress. It’s simply a tube with shirring for the top part.

Material Notes

cotton print

    Oh, I forgot to ask, was it pretty easy to make? How long did the dres take you to make/sew?

    The color suits you well. It’s a beautiful job. It’s a good summer dress. I bet you get a lot of use out of it. Once again, good job!

    A lovely dress all around, and it suits you perfectly. You sure did a good job on the shirring too.
