Fast and Easy Dress for Me!!

The other day I was in Walmart and they had their fabric marked way down, so I picked up a couple of yards. This is one of the prints that I bought. I wanted to make something cute, but could not decide at first. Then I decided that I would try to make a dress for me. I make them all of the time for the girls, so it should not be that hard, right??


It was super simple, I did not use a pattern. I lined it and sewed it into a tube. I then added the hem at the bottom and a casing at the top for my elastic. I threaded my elastic and sewed on my straps and that was it.

I think it is cute, and the length I want. I am linking to these great parties.
