So I printed this pattern from Stitch magazine 5 years ago. Finally made it this summer and it's now one of my favorite dresses. It was probably supposed to be done up in a knit and I took a chance on a cotton. Modifications were adding a bit of width to the sleeves, about 4" of length and a keyhole closure in the back to accommodate the change in fabric.

Here's the link to the pattern: http://www.sewdaily.com/sewing-patterns-and-projects/dresses/pattern-kimono-sleeve-a-line-dress

 That is a really pretty dress and looks well made. Kudos on sewing clothes. I keep saying I am going to do that more but it's intimidating.

I love the cotton! It gives it more structure to highlight the fabric material. Maybe the next can be knit?

It looks like the skirt undulates at the peak  - great detai!

Perfect summer dress. I love citrus fruits so I think that may be why I am so drawn to this fabric, it's beautiful Smiley Maybe now summer is over, you can whip up a knit version?  Wink

Beautiful, and it's impressive to me when someone can modify things and make it their own (I can't "modify" lol).  Yay, you!

God doesn't send people to hell.  He simply honors their choice.
