Now, onto the dress! I made this dress a couple of years ago from a Project Runway maxi dress pattern. I promise I will get the number as soon as I get home (I wrote it down, but of course have misplaced that note). If I recall correctly, I followed the pattern exactly. It was pretty simple and made a great dress. I don't know exactly why I haven't worn it much since making it, but I do love it now! It is very comfy. The only thing I would change next time is to make it a little longer. I like when it just touches the ground. I usually wear it with a jean jacket, but it looks very cute without that too. I wore this during our trip in Iowa to my grandparent's 60th wedding anniversary party. It was good to see the whole family!
Here is a picture of Mike and me.
Here is my mom, brother, and me.
All of us - clearly there was more than one camera to look at ;)
I hope you are finding some time this summer to do something you enjoy! Happy sewing!
