Blue Silky Dress

For this dress, I used the same pattern as for the blue and white paisley dress. I got the fabric, which is a very lightweight silky synthetic, from the SA for $1/2yds. I trimmed it with some really cheap lace and implemented a purple sash around the waist which I made from some leftover WM clearance stuff. (It's not enough to count for anything, but we'll pretend it is in the cost tally.) I don't typically like emphasis on the natural waist line for myself, but this turned out pretty good. The only problem is that the fabric is thin, so I'm going to have to make a slip to wear under it. The top is lined, so no peeking there! :)

Material $1

Lace $.10

Sash $.25


Total $1.35
