Crafty: Modcloth DIY Dress Challenge // + Tutorial

do it yourself

I love the cute casual summer dress, but I wished I could have another one in different, darker colors and a not-so-sheer bottom. That didn’t exist, so I decided to challenge myself to make my own! This is how it came out:

I documented the process of figuring out how to make the similar styled frock and wrote up a tutorial. It has quite a bit of steps so I put it up on Flickr as a set.
