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 added ribbon bows on the shoulders instead of fabric bows. There are six different fabrics in the skirt, which gives it the Bohemian look.
The bodice fabric contains all the colors used in the dress. Cotton trim was added under the bodice and at the hem.
I used purple buttons on the back to match the ribbon.
All 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.
