A Summer Floral Cocktail

Savannah, Georgi...






I originally made this dress to wear to a Quincenera, but I didn’t end up wearing it there so now it is just another fun summery dress in my collection! I actually made this in a couple hours the night before, using the pattern from my lace dress I made. The floral silky fabric was a 1/2 yd remnant I found at Joanns for about $3.75. The top is of yellow shantung that I had leftover, It has a light blue satin lining and deep violet satin seam binding on the inside. I used a simple 12 in black zipper on the back. I styled this with my new Black Oxford Heels that I absolutely love, I got them at Dressbarn, they were initially $39.99 but I got them on sale for only $12.99!

    I’d like to wear a petticoat underneath this dress and would like lots of gathers, any tips or tutorials?

    I’ve tried over and over again but I can’t get it to print in tiles. It’s printing on one page. Can you assist please?

      Hi Megan!
      I’m having the same problem with the printing. Did you figure it out? And if so, can you please let me know how to print it out!?

      Make sure your printing layout setting is set to “Tile All Pages”
