It gets horribly humid here in the summer, so I made some sundresses so I can still look cute, even when my hair gets frizzy and my face gets sweaty... haha, ew.
This one is my favorite! I made it out of a bedsheet. Must have been a decent bedsheet too, because it doesn't seem to wrinkle much, even when I'm really sweaty (gross, I know, sorry). It has a zipper in the back and it kind scoops down in a sexy way, but I can't get a good pic of the back for the life of me...
I made this pink one out of an old shirt-dress my grandma gave me to "make something with." She said she bought it decades ago and never wore it because it fit her weird. I remade the entire top part (before it was a v neck blouse thing with sleeves). I kept the skirt part-- but I cut off the top part of it and gathered it to make it poufy. And I kept the button placket, but I added a few extra holes on the top part. I also added pockets! And I made covered buttons instead of the metallic ones on the original.
This green one is just an 80's-ish dress I bought at a thrift store. It was ankle-length, so I just cropped the hem to my knees and used the extra material to add the pockets!
I made this white one out of fabric that's been in my stash forever. It's white with a small white floral pattern. For the lining, I cut up an old white nightgown-ish thing I grabbed when my aunt was getting rid of some old clothes. It was too thin to make a garment with, but it makes a perfect lining. I used it for the pockets too. The back of the dress is shirred so I didn't need a zipper. And the straps cross in the back.
And here's the wine pic!
