Easy Summer - Dress # 49

Dress # 49 - update photos Hello again, sewing world. Here’s a few pictures of the dress I made this week. Easy Summer -  Dress # 49 from Butterick B5918. The hat is from a project I created last year. I only use it as a display piece. It’s fun to wear for short periods of time. It also serves as a great d├ęcor piece in the entrance of my home.
