I had originally bought this fabric for an Easter dress, but that didn't happen, so it has become a summer dress. We have a wedding to go to this weekend, and I think this will be quite perfect. This is a modified pattern. I think Simplicity? I just added a row of piping under and on top of the smocking. The back is my favorite (the girls', too).

This is for my Patricia's BFF in North Carolina. Her mom (my BFF) gave me a sheet to play with, and this is what evolved. I had some light colored denim fabric that I used to make a lined matching purse. I wanted to try something new for the strap, so I braided long strips of the sheet. According to Patricia, it's awesome! She's getting the next one!

This was completely her inspiration. She picked out the pattern and the fabric, and I have to say, it's cute! She wears it several times a week. It was super easy! Simplicity, It's So Easy 2429. The only alterations I made was to line the top crossover part. Also, I used an elastic loop and button for the back closure instead of a zipper.
