A simple fall dress

 Another homemade creation....

I had bought this cool cotton fall fabric awhile ago (maybe even in August) that I wanted to use to make soem simple fall dresses for Mimi and her friend.  I had a pattern that my friend recommended to me called the "Best Bubble Dress" that was supposedly a fast and easy pattern for all sorts of cute dresses.  You can modify it and spice it up however you like.

I had printed out the pattern and even cut my fabric over a month ago, then with the pace of life, it was left unfinished on my shelf waiting for a quiet afternoon where Mimi took a long nap.  Finally, weeks later, I had my sewing machine out to finish up Mimi's Halloween costume (which came out awesome) and I figured, what the heck, let's go ahead and finish that fall dress while I had everything out and messy already.

I finished Mimi's dress but didn't have time to finish the one for her friend yet.  Here you can see how it turned out.  I paired it with cream tights from Gymboree and some black Mary Janes I got off of ebay for $2.

You want to sew one yourself?  Here's the link to the pattern and the shop.
