First Summer Dress of the Year!

The first home made summer dress of this year is a fact! Booking two little vacation houses for the summer last weekend makes that I'm in the mood for making summer clothes. This first dress is for my oldest daughter.

The dress is made of a knitted shirt from which hangs a skirt made of cotton. Not very clear to see, but the skirt has pleats that are hold together by the ribbon.  You can buy the pattern at SewSet.
