After my DS2 was born, and I was still carrying around some extra baby weight, I cut this dress out. I started it, barely, then set is aside for whatever reason...

*two years later*

I lost weight, I injured myself, I gained some back. I picked the dress back up and finished it. It's a tad bit big, but wearable. Yay! I have a wedding to attend in a couple months and I might just wear this dress. It has pockets! Cheesy

The pattern is McCall's 6696, the fabric is a cotton/linen blend that I got on clearance at JoAnn's. I altered the spacing of the buttons and finished all of the seams.

Beautiful! Perfect for dressing up or down. I bet the fabric feels lovely.

It's dresses like this that make me so envious that I am not skilled enough to sew clothes. So cute! Those colors are awesome too.

Thanks! I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

The fabric is so soft and airy! It was a really great find.
