A shopping trip and a dress idea…

Or copy of a dress would be closer to the truth! I absolutely loved a simple white linen dress at JC Penney, and so had to make one. It was VERY simple, didn’t need a pattern, and I really like the results! It’s kind of 1930’s inspired, being a lowered waistline and a straighter shape. Tonight, despite the lack of lighting, I took a few pictures to share with you all. 🙂



For some strange reason I really liked this photo… I’m not sure why…






From the ground up.

God Bless, everyone, and have a wonderful day! 🙂

    What a lovely young lady you are! I think that dress is perfect for you. It is so pretty and will be perfect for the summer. I can’t imagine trying to sew it without a pattern. You are very skilled, indeed!

    It was really quite simple, just making sure that you leave enough room in the neckline for all the tucks! 🙂

    Can you make me one too?
