Hello, all! As you can probably tell by my screen name my "thing" is mostly knitting. But I was in need of some summer skirts/dresses a while ago and I got mad because Old Navy wanted $25 for some simple panel skirt made from damn-near-sheer material.  Angry Please. So I went to the fabric store and found this awesome fabric that's perfect for a sundress.

I was inspired by Robotsrock Smocktop (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=18063.0) so I went for it and actually sewed something from my own pattern.  Grin

The fabric is very light and silky. Perfect for the summer heat.

Sorry to have to link you. I tried to display the images, but they didn't want to show up.





And on me. It's a little more flattering in person. Trust me.



Comments welcome! Thanks for looking  Cheesy

That is really great.  Beautiful colour, and it looks great on!  It's much nicer than anything you could get in Old Navy, definitely Cheesy

I have been looking for that top for a couple of days now.  Thanks for the link.  BTW, I think I want it to be a dress like yours now.  Beautiful job.  Looks good on.  The color is purdy.

Hey, thanks! It took me a couple searches to find that link too. I can post a quick tute if you'd like to make the dress.
