Description

This was made for a day trip into the country, to see an antique tractor show. Making this dress was so easy – it was a one night project – and it turned out great. It was so comfy in to spend a summer day outdoors! I lengthened the skirt by 5 inches, and went UP a size for the skirt and hips portion while going DOWN a size for the bodice. I also added my own self-drafted, decorative patch pocket instead of the in-seam pockets. The hat was sewn using a Simplicity #8486, the Snow White Movie Anniversary pattern. It was super easy to make, as well, and came together in a few hours and was a cute way to keep the sun out of my face!
