Another Dress!!!

This dress was constructed from Stretch & Sew 1500 just like the last one. The polka dotted fabric came from my goodwill stash!

The neckline on this dress has been modified and I omitted the zipper. I added some "anthropologie" inspired flowers around the neck and sewed a quick belt from some red quilting fabric.

This dress is sleeveless so thank goodness for sweaters because the hem around the arms is terrible.

My apologies for the poor photo quality - its just been much easier for me to blog via blackberry... The camera isn't nearly as clear as my rebel!!!

My third dress

This dress is made from some vintage fabric taken from my stash. The pattern that I used was Stretch & Sew 1500. Its a basic ladies dress. It was fairly easy to construct!

Its so basic that you can dress it up or down!

Our internet wasn't functioning due to a storm so I pulled out some vintage sewing books and figured out the darts without you tube!

Thank you so much for looking! I really look forward to your feedback!

I wore it to work this week with a white cardigan. I need to take the left side in but other than that - I think its great!
