I started this dress about 4 years ago I used a simple pattern for the bodice but at the time I had no understanding of how patterns worked (and I still don't I must admit), I did a lot of things wrong, so many in fact that my mother was unable to help me backtrack and fix it. So the bodice sat in a basket of mending for three years until I came across a sheet at the thrift shop that I loved. When I got it home I realized the blue flowers matched perfectly. I finally got it all put together, but now it's a little big on top oh well, such is life. All the same, I am rather happy with it.
Below is a picture of me pretending it's warm enough outside to where a summer dress ... it wasn't.
