When I saw an inexpensive border print remnant the other day, it seemed like the perfect fabric to use for the Garden Party dress test run.
I cut off the navy trim from the bottom of the fabric print and used it for the waistband pieces. For the bodice, simply used the white non-printed section of the fabric.
This dress is size 5. The fabric is really thin and not very good quality but it'll be ideal to wear on a hot muggy day.
Since there was a little bit of border print leftover, I cut up the pieces and sewed them together (not matching at all) and made a Bucket Hat using the free download because yours truly lost Sheet#2 from Little Things to Sew book and guess which sheet the pattern pieces are for the hat? Geeze.
If this size fits, I'd like to make this dress again using some eyelet fabric from my stash.
