In between working on my Titanic stuff, I also made two new spring/summer dresses. Every year around this time I get the itch to make some pretty new warm weather clothes, and despite the fact that I already have a closet full of dresses in this style, I couldnt help making two more. Plus, I plan to wear these on an upcoming England/Paris trip and I cant resist making a new outfit for vacation. :)
The first dress is a gorgeous butterfly print silk crepe. I made a circle skirt from this fabric back in 2007, and with very careful cutting, I had just enough fabric to squeeze out this dress. I can tell this will get a lot of wear; the skirt sure did! The second dress is a simple cotton floral print, piped with some teal linen for added interest. Both dresses are lined in cotton lawn.
