I knew something about this dress seemed familiar when I spotted in on Modcloth today (the dress isn’t even available for sale on their site yet – it’s coming soon), apart from it being totally gorgeous and utterly wearable, of course.
AHA! Yes here is the exact fabric at fabric.com! (Alternatively, check out the other colourway here)
So why wait (and then pay $109.99!) when you can make your own for less now, right?
The dress pattern above only calls for 2 yards of fabric. 1 yard for lining, plus a zip, the pattern and thread, I would estimate you could make this dress paying full price for everything for under $50 USD. If you’re a bargain hunter, even cheaper. Plus, this would be a great beginner’s project as it’s an “easy to sew pattern”!
Have I convinced you of the economics of making your own modcloth inspired dress yet?
