This dress, was an impulse make. I spied this cute version online and fell in love with the pattern.
Rather than bother with mini hems, I just used a roll hem stitch on my over locker. After adding length to the dress when cutting, I opted to keep it short, as drafted, as I think it helps tone down the flounce. I don't normally make flouncy dresses, so I do feel a little self conscious in this style.
Pattern: Vogue 1300 from Spotlight on sale $13.25
