Description

I made this dress just last week using a floral print chiffon. I used the Vogue 1152 pattern with some minor changes made to the design. I didn’t care for the original sleeves so I drafted my own petal style sleeves to give the dress more of a whimsy feel. I also added a lace inset to the front of the dress. Overall it was a really easy dress to make and I really enjoyed making it (:

    Hey! Awesome dress. Just wondering if you had any trouble using chiffon with this pattern as it recommends crepe de chine and other heavier fabrics. I was planning to do it in a chiffon as well but the lady at the fabric shop talked me out of it…

      Thank you Messel! It’s a very fun dress to make. I can’t wait to see it if decide to make it! (: I actually got the hat from a dollar bin at Goodwill couple years back. It’s one of my favorite hats!
