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 what the finished top looks like
Here’s the inside of the top. I used my serger to get that nice clean finished look.
Added the mesh cut outs here
Circle skirt for the bottom of the dress
And here’s the finished look! What do you think?!
Check out how I styled it in the Spring 2014 DIY Look Book. 😉
