I've really been in the mood to make a fun summer dress and I have a friend who really wanted a fun summer dress, perfect match! The 2 prints are from Anna Maria Horner's Bohemian fabric line. I'm in love with the pretty jewel tones.
I dont have the right length zipper in my stash so as soon as i get the zipper put in, this dress will be off to hawaii! Hopefully Rachelle will give us some good pictures of the dress enjoying the sun!
A couple of close ups of the bodice. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. It is fully lined and there are no raw edges anywhere. The pattern i used was from Simplicity. Looking at the pattern's pictures you would never know that a pretty dress could lurk inside, i really hate the way that pattern company's make them look so unappealing and you really have to try to just look at the shape of the dress and ignore the insane 80's flower prints.
