It has been so hot here lately it's crazy. I think they're going to have to rewrite the record books. The airport reported 106 yesterday! Today is much better, but all this hotness made me wish I had more summery dresses. The kind you can just pull on and be comfy and cool in. I hit Jo-Ann Fabrics post July 4th and they were still having a sale. I got 3 patterns and enough fabric for 3 dresses for $30. Sweet! Anyhow, here is dress #1:
I was inspired by our recent trip to the rodeo :) The fabric was only $2 a yard and it's super soft. One thing that I found out is that pattern sizes are totally whack! I should have read the pattern closer before I cut it out. I tried on the top before finishing it at the shoulder seams and it's a good thing I did. This dress has no zipper, it just slips over your head. If I had finished the shoulders I don't think it would have gone over my head. So, I improvised with the ties and I think it actually adds a bit of fun to the dress.
I'm hoping I can get the other two finished before summer is over :) But, we'll see. . . .
