For this dress I used a light cotton voile, which is really light and airy to wear during the warmer weather but also equally as warm when you go into the over air-conditioned buildings (which make you wanna put on a coat cause its so flipping cold!)

The pattern I used for this was new look 6731. I used the waist tie pattern peice as the collar and attatched it to the neck so I could have a bow.

Material Notes

Cotton Voile




Garment Type
Bohemian, Mod, Preppy, Romantic

    i LIVE for cotton voile. i usually consider it for tops only, but now you have me rethinking it for a dress that i could wear tights under. your fabric is beautiful!!!
