Aqua Ruffles

Dress: Made by me {last seen here}

Happy Saturday friends! If this dress looks familiar, you may recognize the style from this post. I made it several years ago by combining three different patterns and redrafting a sleeve pattern. The fabric color is hard to capture on camera - it's a pretty light aqua and I corrected the last photo to show it more true to color. I found the fabric in the clearance bin for $4/yard. It's a fairly easy to make and wear dress, and lately I've been getting the itch to make more things! Thank you so much for visiting!

PS - tomorrow is my birthday!

You are so great at making things! I love the ruffles on this dress. It's flirty and fun. P.s. that side bun is just fab. I've tried to perfect a side bun...but let's just say I have drastically failed!

Happy birthday! I'm impressed that you pieced your pattern together from 3 different ones and redrafted the sleeve. Beautiful color, too. :)
