DIY: Floral Spring Dress

I made this dress about 2 weeks ago and I am simply in love with it. I love anything and everything floral, and when I saw this fabric on the shelf I knew I'd be back to purchase it. :)

I don't really have a tutorial for this dress.. Basically, I picked a dress I already owned and measured each piece, giving myself about an inch of seam allowance, and drew my pattern onto freezer wrap paper. As weird as this sounds, I actually dislike using real patterns because they either confuse me or make things more complicated than they really are. Therefore, I make my own patterns and my own rules most of the time.

I'm quite proud of myself, as this is only took me one day to make! It will be a perfect Spring time dress. :) Sorry for looking down in those two pics. I really just wanted you all to see the matching bow headband, which you can find the tutorial for over HERE (guest post for Allison).

  2. Shannah! This is amazing! I can't believe you just came up with this all on your own... pattern and all. I hope that someday I can have mad sewing skills like you. I also really love the floral fabric you chose. So pretty! :)

  4. I will seriously pay you to make me a dress! Paypal, check, whatever! These are beautiful, and I can never find something like this in stores that fits me correctly.

    You're kinda incredibly with all this DIY stuff. I'm not crafty at all, haha. (:

  17. That's such a gorgeous dress! You make it sound like creating this thing is so easy, even though it looks so perfect! Maybe I'll get brave and go to the fabric store soon to see if there's any floral patterns to buy so I can give this a try!
