A dress for your sweetie!!

And.....what have we been up to over here....A little of this and a little of that, but mostly a little of SUMMER!!!  It has finally arrived here and TODAY we felt it---yikes.  I went fabric shopping yesterday and of course spent the evening trying out my new finds.  I decided to take THIS tank (from my previous tutorial) and lengthen it into a dress.  I kinda loved it---summery and CUTE!!! Kinda Retro or something...I AM and 80's girl I guess♥
I made it the same way I made the tank top, but added to it.  I added a cute little pocket and a lettuce edge---just for a change:)
BTW---this is my first attempt at putting a tag in my clothes---kinda love it.  If you don't--you should.  It makes you feel a little special for a little moment...even if it is one in the morning!!!




This fabric was SOOO cute and it turned out JUST as I imagined---SOOO I decided to share the love.  If you are interested in purchasing a dress like this for your own little darling---check my sidebar.  It is your lucky little tank top dress buying day.

This is so cute! I just picked up some super retro-looking (maybe even vintage?) fabric at a garage sale that I'm planning to do something like this with, and it's great to see it in action so to speak. :-) It looks great!
