Blue Summer Dress

blue summer dress

I took a piece of blue flowery fabric and pleated it to make the skirt section of the skirt. I made the waistband from some left over black fabric for a contrast. Then took the rest of the blue fabric to make the top front in a kind of pinafore style.  It was a square-ish shape but then I folded over the top corners, and I pinched in some of the fabric at the top to get a better shape. I then made some criss-cross straps in the back.  blue summer dress1
