I made this dress in about 2 hours.  It was super easy because you use a stretch fabric (Yeah, no zippers!) I think it's really comfy, fits all body types, and in a solid color I can dress this up for work.  You can't see very well, but it has puff sleeves with a band at the cuff and elastic at the empire waist. 
Do you like? *You should make one! lol

Cute!!!  This color really suits you, and you're right . . . this would be a great dress for work in a solid color. 

Nice work, I wish I could finish a dress in two hours!

That is a cute little dress, perfect for the babydoll styles this summer. Plus, in a stretch knit, it's way comfortable, too. That for thrifted pattern and cloth. Wow. That is a true bargain. Would you post the pattern number if you think of it? Sometimes you can find the old ones on ebay or at etsy.

Thanks everyone for the compliments! But I actually got the pattern at Hancock Fabric for 99cents when they had a special.  I'll post the pattern # later, but it's a Butterick "easy" style. And yes, my daughters want me to make the dress into babydoll tops for them.  There were only 6 pattern pieces to use; front and back bodice, sleeve, skirt front and back, and a piece for the neckline trim and the band on the sleeves.  Please post if anyone makes one.

Great dress!  Isn't it a fabulous feeling when you can make something that looks so darn good without spending a lot of money?  I just love that feeling.  Anyway, you did awesome...I am inspired to shop for some discount fabric and make myself a great dress...(already got a bunch of .99 patterns, best thing ever.)  Keep it up and remember to share your pics!!

Adorable!  Why is it I can never find thrift store fabric?  Or, when I do it is always some awful double-knit poly stuff that feels just yucky?  Lucky you!

Excess aint rebellion. Youre drinking what theyre selling. Your self-destruction doesnt hurt them. Your chaos wont convert them. Theyre so happy to rebuild it. Youll never really kill it. Yeah, excess aint rebellion.
