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.

1 Hawaiian Summer Dress Fabric from Hawaii Pattern heavily altered by me from Vogue V1094
7 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.
8 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.
9 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.
