I've been whipping up some breezy summer stuff for this hot weather (it was 105 degrees last weekend.
This material was in a box of old fabric from my best friend's grandmother, who passed away last year. It was actually a set of curtains, but I just love that orangey red color and had the perfect ribbon to go with it, so, wa-la its a shirt!
Ignore the bizarre drama queen pose, I was just trying to get an angle that didn't make me look huge! And I have a broken toe, hence the lovely splint. This dress is so comfy and I actually drafted the pattern myself. A few alterations later, I love it!
Yay for dollar fabric! I used the same pattern for this dress and tweaked the neckline a bit. I also did a contrasting gray and white floral fabric and fabric covered buttons.
Thanks for looking!
