I felt very inspired one night and decided to try something I had never done before...draft a pattern! Turned out pretty awesome, I think.

Dress details:
$2/yd Walmart polyester cut on the bias. The skirt is a simple A-line with added panels that are separated by piping. I widened the shoulder seams to create a half sleeve and added a tie belt to hide that ackward point where the panels end.  I'm prepared to post a tute if enough folks want one.

That is too cute. Fits you like a dream. I'd love a tute, but I'm afraid I would be able to do nothing useful with it, since I'm not a great seamstress yet.

Your dress is so fabulous!  I love neckline and the sleeves, they are awesome.   Cheesy

And I freakin love how you accessorized with a hat AND running shoes.  Fab-dabulous.   Grin

That's great! I love how the swoop ends in little scallops at the bottom edge, too!
