Not A Wedding Dress

So, I loved this pattern and I decided to order it online. It came in. I measured myself and then made the dress to those specifications. I thought that I was going to be a size 14 because that’s what I measured out to be. NOPE. I was my regular size 6 so this dress went through a LOT of alterations. I still think it turned out super cute and totally wearable. However, the cut and color make it look a bit like a short wedding dress. My mother told me not to be getting ahead of myself. I laughed.

    Lets make all our days as a wedding day! I think that women can look feminine, ladylike and wear white as much as the princesses like. :) Your dress is a dream dress. Very cute.

    I’m a huge fan of this dress – it has such clean lines and yet a lot of personality. Don’t worry about the white – tis the season!

    I’m having trouble finding that pattern number, could you provide a link to where you found the pattern?

      It’s a paper pattern that I purchased from the Handcock Fabrics near my house. Simplicity 2180 and I used the dress A pattern.

      I used Simplicity 2180 A as my base and then altered it quite a bit to fit me!

    LOL. Don’t worry,, it doesn’t look like a short wedding dress but like a very summery and comfortable dress. It’s very nice and cute. What pattern is it?
