Summer Dress, v. 1


I finally organized my fabric supply and remembered that I'd wanted to make more for Rory with the sheet that I used before (skirt). I have a (organized! for now...) corkboard with a list of things that I need to make and finish. I completely disregarded that yesterday morning and finished this dress. It's pillowcase dress-ish. I found the lace scrap in my giant mountain of crafty things and love how it looks on the hem. I made a strap from the fabric to tie in one bow on the front. It's a more simple look than the traditional ribbon, and I think I like it better. I'll tweak a few things here and there for the next one, but I like how sweet and summery this one came out. Oh, and it was so quick to make. Love that, too.

I like it too, Kacy. The less like a mullet, the better.

Mom, are you trying to get me to bake you more cookies? (I'm so on to you.)
