Summertime always makes me want to wear gorgeous floaty dresses and this one is a real winner. AND there is nothing at all complicated about making it so that makes it a double winner! For the top you put an existing blouse on to your fabric and cut around it and then you use rectangles for the skirt. Easy peasy!

Love this dress! This one looks like it would be an amazing beach cover-up!

This dress looks so comfy! I love wearing flowy dresses in the summer, and this one looks right up my alley!
