Well, here it is, the first dress from my July Sewing Challenge (which is actually my second attempt at a dress. My first one went all weird - perhaps due to my complete and utter lack at being able to follow instructions. I just tend get a little bored with instructions sometimes and think I know more than I actually do. It's fixable but I need to wait for some white vintage cotton to arrive on my door step).
I used the pattern on the right - the blue dress in the middle and then added the little cap sleeves from the pink dress. I think this is the perfect edition to my summer work wardrobe and I'm very excited about wearing it.
I used a vintage polished cotton to make this one and unfortunately didn't have quite enough to make the little dart folds in the front skirt of the dress. But I got a little creative and I think it looks relatively true to form - what do you think?
