A few months ago I found a lovely fabric at a garage sale and thought this would be perfect for a summer dress. I chose simplicity 2373 because there you can see the gorgeous fabric pattern the best. But I didn’t add the braids to the dress. It was quite easy to sew, all I had to do was to shorten the skirt for a better fit.
This might not be the perfect season for sewing a summer dress considering that it just began to snow ;). But hardly any chances for white christmas, the forecast says there will be around 8°C at christmas.
I will have to add a lining to the skirt part so that the skirt will fall better. Sometimes it tends to move upwards and I hope the lining will prevent the skirt from wandering around.
