This was something I just whipped up this afternoon.  I want to try and wear dresses all summer, and I have a lot of fabric laying around Smiley
I bought this fabric while on a quick layover in Hawaii back in January.  My friends there took me to the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet to get my souvenirs.  It was a TON of fun and I came home with so many goodies for very little money.  This cotton fabric was a 4 yard piece for $10!  The pattern was a heavily modified version of the Vogue V1094 pattern... it doesn't really look a thing like the pattern lol ( http://sewing.patternreview.com/review/pattern/87378 )
I also made a sash that ties around the middle, but it's hard to see in the photo.

cute! but you're right, it looks nothing like that vouge pattern lol. I too have the goal of wearing dresses all summer (walmart clearanced a ton of fabric last month and i may have just grabbed every bolt they had  Tongue ) but a messed up wrist has severely hampered my sewing speed so i still have yet to finish anything Sad

It's so pretty!
But I may be biased. I love purple. It looks so good on us redheads!

I am obsessed with anything tiki/Hawai'i/aloha. Your dress is beautiful!! I love the colors in the fabric. I don't think there's a better souvenir than fabric that you make something out of. Great job!
