Summer Dresses
Hawaiian Print Dress 2013
The fabric was purchased while in Hawaii at the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet.  It's a super soft and light cotton.  
The pattern was altered from Vogue V1094 heavily.  I really only used it for dart placement on the bodice.  
The skirt is 4 panels and is blind hemmed in place.  The bodice is lined in a natural cotton.

Rayon/Cotton Jersey Maxi Dress - 2010
Made from fabric purchased at Mood.  Keenan and Kellie got me a gift certificate to there, otherwise I  would never be able to afford that place.
Made from Vogue Pattern V8470.

Linen Halter Dress - 2007
Made from an embroidered linen that my mother gave me and a pattern that I drafted based on another dress I own.

Vogue V8470 and Rayon/Cotton Jersey Knit from Mood Fabrics.
The pattern wasn't meant for knit fabrics but it just drapes so nicely with the full circle skirt base.

Top of the dress - View E
Instead of using iron on interfacing (I didn't have any), I used a silk that was basted to the front fabric for rigidity in the front waist panel.  The whole top is lined in plain white jersey I had on hand.  I would have self lined, but I ran out of fabric.

Front of the skirt simply pinned on for now.  I'm using view B for the skirt, so there will be a ruffle on the bottom to make it into a maxi dress for summer.
