I made this dress using New Look Pattern 6824, (the purple dress version) with slight modifications:
1. I shortened the sleeves.
2. I added pockets, because I love pockets!
3. I rounded the square neckline.
This is a very easy to follow pattern and I love all the options available.
I'm in the process of finishing another dress from this pattern. Yep, another midi skirt!!

|This dress will be perfect styled with my white sandals for summer.|
|The wind caught my skirt, making me think I should make|
a petticoat so my skirt is always this floofy (that's a word today)

A dress is the easiest way to look put together. It's one piece, a no brainer!
The fit and flare style of dress is universally flattering on all heights and body types, if you don't have one then you need one!
I know that not everyone sews (yet!) so I want to share some great versions of this style of dress you can buy. I found these online at Omika and they are a great length for us tall girls and all under $65.00! To me a midi skirt loses all of its style and elegance if it's too short.

A subtle touch of animal print, I'm in love!
A great dress to dress up or down!
