I have been meaning to write this post for two months now and have finally gotten around to it. I purchased this BEAUTIFUL cotton double gauze fabric last year sometime and had been looking for the perfect dress to make with it.

The fabric is stunning, and I was a little unsure what exactly I wanted to make with it. The print is very bold with large scale blooms, so I wasn’t sure if a dress was quite the right thing. But, I really wanted a summer dress, so I decided on this easy pattern:

This is a “Very Easy Vogue” pattern, and it is easy. I did have to make a few fitting adjustments as I was doing the construction because it is so loose fitting. I took the bust and waist in quite a bit, it was still very comfortable to wear. I am always afraid that the waist will be too snug with the post-babies belly 🙂 The neckline is very low, so I always wear it with a camisole underneath.
Here is how it turned out:
