Last summer I altered a bridesmaid dress for a friend. As a thank you, she gave me the dress after the wedding so I could make something out of its beautiful yardage. Out of the skirt alone I was able to cut out this summer dress. It just so happens to also be my favorite color. What a blessing!
The pattern I used was Simplicity 3678. This was my first time sewing with stretch fabric, and I loved how it turned out. The dress slips nicely over my head, and is very comfortable.
