My mind is on trees and flowers and cute dresses for spring. I made this dress before in red satin with black beaded trim an evening dress. I also made one with short sleeves in black pique. I decided to make it again. After I take the time and alter the pattern with my FBA its very easy to make again and again, especially when it fits so nice. I purchased this fabric from some fabric store's bin for 1.00 per yard. I purchased about 3 yards but after cutting around the flaws I only had enough to make this dress. Its some type of rayon fabric.
