Mary’s Bohemian Dress

I spotted a dress like this in a catalog for about $80. I was stunned! It was made out of cotton fabric, had cotton trim and a fabric bow. I thought it was so cute and I knew I could make it for less than $18-$20. And I did!

I used purple buttons on the back to match the ribbon.

IMG_0812All in all, I think it is a pretty cute little dress. And now that I think about it, cuter and certainly cheaper than the catalog dress.
