DIY Floral Skater Dress with Mesh Cut Outs


Okay I swear this is that last floral print I will be making something with (fingers crossed behind my back). lol I just had to create a simple and comfortable dress that was hitting on the current trends: floral, mesh, and cut outs.

To make this look I used the top of another dress as a pattern to create my own pattern. For the bottom, I just created a regular circle skirt. I did add a lining to the top of the dress for more support but didn’t feel like I needed it for the bottom.

I got the floral fabric from Joann Fabrics and the black lining from a local fabric store called SAS.  Check out the process and finished look!

Here’s the inside of the top. I used my serger to get that nice clean finished look.

And here’s the finished look! What do you think?!

Check out how I styled it in the Spring 2014 DIY Look Book. 😉
