Surplice Bodice Casual Pink Silk Linen Dress

It’s been hot here in Portland, last weekend reached 100 degrees. So, I decided that I need an easy, cool little dress to pull on and go. I saw this dress on for $158 and thought “no way, I can make that for about $20”.

 I found this pattern

and ran out to the fabric store and got this perfect, lightweight and colorful fabric to make it in. It was a quick and satisfying dress to sew, and I even made the bias binding myself using one of those little gadgets that make bias tape along with using the iron. Perfection for a hot, summer day! Love it!
