I had hopes of finishing this for the sew-along, but time got the best of me. This was my third attempt at making this dress….yes third time. The first time the fabric I chose was not forgiving, I am going to see if I can still work it. The second one just didn’t look right and this one was perfect for me. I purchased the material from Thrift Town and it was used for a bag I had made for a birthday gift. I had a bunch left over, thus the dress was made. I love buttons and I might add more to it! I like it and it is comfortable and easy to dress up or down.
I believe it is a cotton and rayon mix.
