I've made this dress a few times, and I wear it so often, I wore my favorite one completely out! So it needed replacing.
The fabric is an ITY print from fabric,com. It's a nice substantial fabric, and it was nice to sew. The weight is pretty much perfect for a dress, so I'm glad I bought enough for a maxi.
The only change I made from previous versions was to omit the shoulder tie. I raised the back neckline significantly when I made it the first time, so the tie doesn't actually serve a function, and it was always coming untied.
And with that - let the summer dress season begin!!
