My goal this summer was to make 2 skirts and 2 summer dresses.  So far I've made 1 summer dress and 2 skirts Smiley  I took all the pics myself, with a tripod and felt quite stupid setting the timer, running, changing outfits etc... my neighbours must think i'm crazy :p  crazy for craftster, that is lol

Dress: 


it has double straps and a half circle skirt. 
I used this pattern for the bodice:

it required no alterations, except that i removed the dropped waist by just cutting the front so it was the same length as the back Smiley

Skirts:

half circle skirt, with brown trim, so i didn't have to hem it :p 


tiered brown skirt
action shot:

you can see the tiers better in this picture

I used dark fabric for both skirts, because I will be taking them travelling with me, and I figured dark colours would hide the dirt better :p
