I was walking pass the fabric store on my way home from work today, so I went in. I love browsing through the different fabrics. I get excited about raw material, the possibilities are endless. Anyways, I found some fabric from the remnants pile. I bought 1 1/4 yard of light weight woven cotton for only $2.69.
For inspiration, I browsed the Urban Outfitters website. Their retro chic style is totally me. However, they hardly have sales. Here is a dress I tried to copy. It's $58.
Here is my version. This is my first dress I made from scratch. I'm pretty happy with the result.
Instead of using a belt, I sewed an elastic band. The $3 I spent would've paid for the tax on the Urban dress, so I saved $58!!!
