My pretty summer dress

Added Apr 13, 2009

This dress was really easy and quick to make up. I started making it this Easter. I forgot to buy a zip for it (grrrrr) and didn’t want to wait until Tuesday (so far away!!) when the shops open again so I used some buttons that I bought a year ago for crafts.

Material Notes

Cotton, wooden buttons




Garment Type

    Hahaha, you reminded me of myself – I am also very anxious to start sewing when I have the right fabric and the right idea matched together. I like your dress, It’s very flattering. Oh, and thanks for your lovely comments on my dress ;).
