Summer Dress

Remember this dress?

I finally finished it up with the bodice from the original pattern.

I like it a lot better now. It is not the best time of year to finish up a summer dress, but the bodice is very wide and it will fit my daughter for sure next year so I'm not too worried about it. 

A couple things--I didn't have enough of the right interfacing so I used muslin instead of interfacing the bodice. I don't know if I would recommend that but it worked out ok for now. I also didn't do the straps exactly as recommended in the pattern, but they turned out just fine as well.

The pattern is from Ottobre Design 3/2006, #22. My daughter likes it, a lot!
