Floral #2 from Project 3

Floral #2 is here!!!  This was a really fun project.  And I must say right off the bat, the material is actually two pillow cases that I thrifted... Yeah, pillow cases, ha!!! Oh, and a little bit of maroon liner from the fabric store(liner is really inexpensive). I decided to add pockets while sewing together the skirt portion of the dress and I am so glad I did. Pockets on a dress??? It just doesn't get any better than that. I left a little room for the shrinkage that will happen in the wash... the dress after all is two cotton pillow cases:)
 I originally wanted to do an more A-line skirt but I didn't have enough material for that, so I decided to go with a gathered skirt instead.  I sill wish I had enough for the A-line, but hey, I think it still turned out great.
 Behold the fabulous pockets!!!
 I still want to find a cute belt to put it with, this was one I grabbed from my closet.
I hope you have enjoyed #1 and #2 Floral thus far:)  Can't wait to show you #3.

Thanks,
Meg
