I Made A Dark Blue Dress

Okay, does everyone remember my weekend project I started a few weeks ago? I wanted to turn this pretty dark navy fabric into some kind of loose-fit shirt dress. Well guys I tried, I really did, to follow a pattern but…as with my cooking, I hate following recipes. I just want to look at the ingredient list and throw it all together! So after a few hours of reading, cutting the pattern out, and reading some more, I was annoyed at how long it was taking and also still confused about a few things. So, I grabbed one of my dresses, pulled the sleeves inside out, and traced the sleeve line with fabric chalk. The rest was me just playing with the fabric and…somehow, the sleeves turned out pretty good, and so did the rest! It’s totally my style–loose fitting/figure hiding short dress. I know it’s not something everyone would wear, but I hope you like it. It’s the comfiest dress in the world.
