I had a basic white strap blouse made of cotton; I wanted to combine it with something light and colorful to create a delightful summer dress.My eye this flowery textured material and I made a skirt out of it, sewed it together with the blouse.It was not complete, for me; so, I made a cute lacy split on the front bottom of the skirt and added my hand-made rosette right on top of the slit, and one more hand-made rosette on the bust of the dress. If you wish to wear it with the belt, I made it out of the same material that I used for the skirt.It can be worn with and without it.There is a zipper on the left side of the top of the dress.
