We have had such beautiful sunny days that it is hard to be in my sewing studio......but I did want a white dress to wear this weekend so I came up with this dress. I have had this cotton batiste fabric for a while & finally sewed this summer dress. Like my fabulous camera skills?........my beloved camera that has traveled to Europe with me is slowly dying.....now the shutter is stuck......I am looking for a new camera!
I used McCall's 6199 pattern .........this time as an overlay as this fabric is sheer. I cut a size 12 but took in the side seams 1 inch from about the waist to the length......for a better fit.
I also made the cotton skirt & tank top that is underneath this modern circle fabric. I really like the hem on this pattern & it is such a easy summer dress to make with only bodice darts to sew!
A little inspiration......this dress from Oscar de la Rental Spring 2011 collection has inspired me to make a couple of white with a touch of black projects.
~ wishing you a weekend of sheer fabulousness ~
