Well, I want to make a dress for when I go back to school on Sep. 2nd, but I have no idea what kind. I'm might hand sew it but I'm probably going to end up using the sewing machine with my mom.
       Anyway, does anyone know any nice & simple casual dresses I could wear back to school that'll go w/ a nice scarf? If you do, please link pics/patterns!!! Any written ideas are great also!

I'm "petite" to some people I guess (I'm 5'0) & *cough*sorta flatchested (32 a)*cough* so no "busty" stuff please! :DBut I'm ok w/ short...here are my measurements:
  Waist: 25
  Bust: 30
  Hip 33 1/2
             
       Thanks for taking the time to read this!!!!

The fabric will depend on the pattern. Use a sewing machine, it is so much faster(atleast to me, I take forever handsewing)
Buy a pattern that is simple, easy, that you like, and preferably on sale. Just look through the pattern books.

Cotton is the best fabric, imo.
