The great and wonderful thing about this boho dress if that you can really create this in a budget! Check out thrift stores, garage sales and resale shops or even estate sales, and you can get some deals on older clothes, fabrics or even bed linens! You would be surprised at some of the linen fabric that can look quite designer! And you never ever will see your unique creation anywhere else! Super!

I LOVE this pattern! This would be a great dress to wear with a cardigan as the weather gets colder. Plus, the boho look is SO in right now!
