Thanks everyone!

I love them both, but I think the first one is my favorite.  I love how it looks with the cardigan and I love the colors you chose. Smiley what type of fabric did you use for the first dress?

The first dress is just cotton. I spent waaay too much time trying to find the "just right fabric" that didn't exist. I wanted something a lot more lightweight for the top layer but all I could find was cotton broadcloth. The under layer is a really soft light cotton.

I recently made two new dresses. I'm sorry for the lack of pictures.
The first one I made for my birthday. I like it a lot, but it ended up being way poofier than I planned so its not really practical for everyday wear. I used the Burda Style Azalea dress pattern with a few small modifications.

On the hanger:

On the body:

That is how I wore it on my birthday. The cardigan helped keep the poof down, but without it I felt like a balloon. Next time I know not to use such a stiff fabric.

And the other one is from a Built by Wendy pattern which I didn't like very much. I'm no expert, but I felt like this pattern was way more confusing than it had to be. Anyway, the dress is really really sloppily made. I botched the collar really bad, but I love this dress. I wish I could wear it every day. You can't tell from the photo but its navy blue with tiny white polka dots.

Thanks for looking!

Hmm, on my computer both of the pictures are the black shirt.
Thanks Amaryce for the suggestion! That looks like I might be able to go somewhere with that!
