Seersucker!


 A couple of weeks ago Danny and I were over at his sister's house and she showed me a picture of the cutest little shirt dress! It was the Wrap Weekend Dress by Milly. It had a lot of detail and the most interesting effect of a shirt dress mixed with a wrap dress. I don't know how it would feel on, but in the picture it looked darling. I knew that I couldn't make the dress exactly how Milly did, but I could at least get some similar fabric, and add a big bow to give it more of a wrapped look. I used a really cute seersucker gingham fabric, there was a girl in my clothing class that used a black seersucker fabric for a wrap dress she made, and I've wanted to try and work with that fabric ever since I saw how nicely the fabric worked as a dress! Here was my chance! I think it's so cute, I can't wait to pair it with yellow sandals this summer!


Here's the actual dress. It's so cute with the wrap around detail and the buttons on the sleeves!
