Though I can't take complete credit for the design (as I referenced another dress that I had), I did have to make the pattern myself. I'm pretty happy with this little dress, can't wait to wear it out!

For the fabric, a lovely pale blue cotton with browns and whites in a tribal pattern that I "stole" (she let me have it) from my grandmother's fabric stash. I should have measured the yardage that I took, but I didn't. It was wide enough to wrap around me 1.5 times and was about half way down my shins if I wrapped the fabric around my like a towel (under my arms). I ended up with a piece about 10" by 5". Close call!

Its partially lined (the bodice), and has shirring in the back, so no zipper! My first time shirring. I LOVE IT. Turned out perfectly, and its very comfortable. Super super easy too.

I plan on using this pattern again soon! Can't have too many sundresses!  Cheesy

Adorable dress! was the bust difficult to construct? I've been wanting to make my own bustier since I can't find anything I like in store, but I haven't found any store-bought patterns I've liked so far.
