I wanted to try to make a summer dress to myself, and i love this fabric.
I think it is a little cute, not as beautiful as the dresses i see here that you all have made

I think its gorgeous! I love the trim around the hem!
Was it your first time making a dress? Not because i think it looks amateurish I'm just curious. I really want to try making a dress but patterns kinda scare me! Any tips?

The fabric is lovely, its perfect for a summer dress and I also love the gold/yellow and brown center bands that you have added, they really finish it off and make it look special, great work Smiley

I don't like patterns myself, and they scares me to, so i used a top i liked and tried to coped it, then i added the skirt, but i didn't,t like it so added the waist band
this was my first dress in my size, sew mostly to my kids

I love that fabric, and this dress is so well executed.  It also flatters you well! You should be proud!
