Yes, so it's like the middle of winter...or so I thought. All of a sudden it has become spring! The weather has been super nice and very not winter. So I decided to make a dress I could wear while the mini spring lasted. I used a pattern, I'll post what it was later. I know it's by simplicity. Anywho, I made it out of some super thin, super soft knit I found for either a dollar or two dollars a yard...I can't remember. I love it!

Sorry, that's about the best picture I have. But you get the idea. It's so soft! I love it.
Thanks for looking.

This is very cute! I like the color, and the dress looks great on you!
Where are you from? I'm in Illinois, and it's icy and freezing here... you're lucky you have a "mini spring."  Wink

Thanks guys! I live in Georgia, and I'm sad to say but I think my "mini spring" is starting to fade back. It was good while it lasted though.  Cheesy

Pretty dress!  I was looking at a patter for something really similar last week, but I got too scared.

Would you happen to know which patter from Simplicity it is from?
I'm going to guess Simplicity 3882, because I have it and plan to make it soon! But KairiGurl's maybe made it halter, which looks awesome!!
