I'm new to the site - hello everyone.  And posting my first project here today.
I sew over at So Sew Easy and am quite new, sewing only since the end of last year, but I like to make up my own patterns and share them with my blog readers.  This is the latest - an easy summer dress in a knit fabric.

It has a lined and ruched front bodice, and empire waistline and a flattering fit over the hips.  There are several different options for straps or you can wear it strapless too because it has elastic in the top back. The pattern is available to download for free in small, medium and large and I've included some instructions on how to increase or decrease the size too.  I've got a full photo step by step tutorial on my site.

I'd love to know what you all think!  Thanks for looking,  Deby at So Sew Easy.
