So it happens that a lot of my sewing projects are made in pink fabric. I'm not quite sure how that happens, as pink probably is not the most flattering color for my skin tone, but I go back to it again and again.



I made this dress to wear on my boyfriend's birthday a few days ago. I made it on the day of in a few hours, so it has some technical "issues" but I'm happy to see a concept actually materialize as I envisioned it. A pattern was not necessary because the pieces are just different-sized rectangles. The bodice is lined and the top and waistline have elastic casings.

Thanks for taking a look! Smiley

Thank you so much for everyone's positive feedback!

For those of you who are interested in making a similar style, I can direct you to this tutorial here: http://icandyhandmade.blogspot.com/2011/07/fun-in-sundress-fancy-free.html

I didn't use this tutorial, but the approach is very similar to mine, but I added an elastic for the waist. I hope it helps!

Very pretty! It really is nice when something comes out the way you envision it; I find that more often than not I can't get the beautiful vision in my head to actually materialize and it is frustrating to say the least... Smiley Great job, it looks like a super comfy summer dress!
