A Slice of Summer

 It's cold and rainy outside so what a better way to brighten up the day than to sew up a watermelon dress for this summer! I found the fabric the other clearance down to a price I couldn't pass up. That night as I was sitting on the couch working on birthday party invitations I hit me that this would be a very cute summer dress!
                                 
I used a pattern similar to the black dress, this dress has a shorter bodice to keep Sweet pea cooler this summer.  I made a thinner sash to go around the bottom of the bodice and added a little bow to the front.
 I placed buttons down the bodice back. I love these shinny red buttons!
I am so ready for warmer weather and now so is Sweet pea. :)
