Happy Independence Day

Happy July Fourth! Usually I just wear some kind of red, white or blue today, but this year with the influence of Sew Weekly I decided to make something! This dress was extremely simple and I did it all last night and this morning!

Pattern UsedButterick 4443
Size Made: 12
Notions: 12 inch zipper, called for a 22" one and bias tape instead of a lining
Fabric: Cotton print~$8
Time to Complete: 4 hours
Total Cost: ~$10

Notes....I did not make a lining, instead I just used bias tape to cover the seams. I think it made the top a bit looser, but it is okay. I had gotten a shorter zipper, which works, but I have to squeeze into the dress over my head! The pattern was very simple and very fast to work up with not challenges at all. I don't know if I would make it again.

  1. I love that fabric. I often use bias tape for finishing too. It looks very vintage!
