[Made for and modeled by my daughter Mori]

Hello Peeps! I am super excited about this make and I am calling it my "POT LUCK" dress because I took all the African Wax prints in my stash that had similar colors to color block this dress. I will admit this dress is LOUD as hell and I love it. I don't think Mori was super thrilled with this one but it looked fabulous on her. Sometimes I win and sometimes not! I was excited about this pattern because one, it was super easy and two, I knew that with my fabrics it could be awesome. This is a dress that can be made in a day, honestly it's that easy. The pattern:  Butterick B6088  If you're new to sewing this is s great pattern and if you're experienced it's still a great pattern because you can do so much with it. 

I was able to secure links to some of the prints I used. This fabric is not thick and would be great for a lined Spring/Summer dress or quilting. Fabrics:  Skirt Front,   Sleeve Top and the   Belt. These are the fabrics I purchased from Michael Levine. A few other prints in my stash that would work well for this dress:  Navy & Orange Geo shapes and  Navy & Orange X's. Check out  The Zipper Shipper for your 30 inch zipper needs.....if you have booty problems.
