Here's my first completed dress of the summer! Cotton jacquard for the skirt, embroidered cotton for the bodice, ruffle and sash. I used a McCall's pattern as a base, but it wasn't long enough in the bust and I wanted other tweaks too, so I re-drafted it. Pretty much all I kept were the princess seams...lol. Replaced the suggested zipper with elastic shirring on the back two panels. I decided not to bone it, although the bodice is lined and the skirt is not. The sash ties in the back and has the cute little triangle-ed ends. Ruffle also a personal addition that I *love*....umm what else..oh, the skirt is gathered. Yeah, that's about it lol.

Only one pic right now because I'm sicky Sad Sorry for the seriously crappy pictures, I was just so excited to share! More and better ones to come in the next couple days (once I can get my bf to take pics instead of having to stand in a mirror lol).
