I have now made this dress twice. I found this pattern on pinterest and I immediately loved it and knew I had to make something. It is pretty easy, it just takes forever to finish the seams properly, but that is my complaint for everything. I lined this dress, lengthened the sleeves, added about 2 inches to the hem and dropped the waist about an inch and a half. I found the houndstooth fabric at Joann for $2.50/yard. I had the lining fabric (black). I am pretty sure the belt cost more than the entire dress! I have said how much I am loving houndstooth??
