I wanted something bright and crisp for Spring, and this Kaffe Fassett fabric is so pretty, I just had to make something quick. So I improvised this nightie (too short for a dress I think). My man approves! What do you think?

Ooh - yummy!  That fabric is just gorgeous, and what a lovely style!

Personally I'd wear it as a nightie, because it's too girly to wear over trousers, and I'd be nervous of its shortness.  Then again - if you're brave enought o wear it out you should, to show off your great work Cheesy

I think in the summer you could easily pair it with some dark shorts and it would look great! It'd be a sort of summery tunic look. In any case, it's so cute!

It's rather bright - but that's not a bad thing! I'm just a wimp who is intimidated by bright things!

I think it has great versatility for the summer.

If you have water nearby (or plan on traveling to it), you could use it for a cover-up if you like.
I think it would look good with a pair of darker blue jeans (black would be too much of a contrast, I think).
Also, you could make a very light skirt in the same color as the green accents (I don't know the name of the fabric I'm talking about, but it's a very light, airy sort that is often somewhat sheer when not layered...almost like tissue paper, kindasorta)

It looks great as is, but you have a lot of options for wearing it out. Good job!

What gorgeous material! I think it looks lovely on you as a dress, but maybe steer clear of windy days  Wink.  The button/neckline is very pretty too.
