I've been in a sewing funk lately, but I finally got around to making a new dress!

The weather has been cloudy lately, so the lighting in the house hasn't been ideal, so I need to hold off on a mannequin picture for the time being.

This dress is made from a yellow sheet set I got at Ross (cheap bedding = muslin material). I drafted the bodice pattern using McCall's M5800 for reference and borrowed the skirt piece from Christine Haynes Chic & Simple Sewing . It has bust darts and an elasticized waist. The bow is a strip of fabric sewn horizontally down the middle to the lowest part of the neckline. I tend to like bows that can actually tie, but I might use a ready-made bow for the next version of this dress.

Comments and criticisms always appreciated!

(and you can see more information about the dress on my blog: http://lovemakesthegirl.blogspot.com/2011/05/make-something-monday-yellow-bow-dress.html)
