Calico Sundress

So over the weekend I finished up this little dress which is perfect as I live in Arizona and its already heading towards the 90s this week! Yuck.

It is based off of this unprinted catalog pattern from my stash.

Overall I’m quite pleased with the shape but I’m not quite sure about the buttons. I like them up close but from a distance the pockets blend in and I appear to have two weird pink polka dots on my hips ( just what I wanted, extra attention in that area)

    I think this dress is SO cute on you! The shape is wonderful, and the hem line is in the perfect place. I think that the buttons on the hip are sweet, but if you feel uncomfortable maybe you could change them to another colour?

    You could always pull the pockets off, pipe around them with pink 1/4" bias tape and then put them back. It would make the pockets pop out a little more.

    I adore these pockets! I may have to make this dress too. It is so summery!
