Make Your Own Dress

I saw this little dress from Spool No.72
a few months ago and fell in love.
It was more than I wanted to spend ($52) on a
summer dress. And I wanted one that had sleeves.
So what did I do?
Made my own!
I already owned this top (from the Gap Outlet, $6)
so all I had to do was buy 1 yard of "Jelly Bean" green
linen, some thread and some elastic (all for less than $10)
and voila!
I even added the belted sash.
super easy, super inexpensive, and
I love it!

*So next time you see something you love
that's over your price range, don't be afraid to
try and make one yourself*

  1. I'm impressed! It looks so similar to the original.

  2. LOVE this...another for my project list, especially since I live in sunny San Diego...we can always use an extra dress - being able to say I 'made' it is always a plus ;-)

  3. I love the dress in the first picture but yours really isn't that flattering.

    1. Why was it necessary to tell her that? She was telling everyone how easy it is to make your own and giving people ideas. She didn't ask for your opinion. That was rude.

  4. Loveit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
