I liked this little casual summer dress for our long hot summers here in Florida. It seemed very simple to whip it up, but it also needed a pop up color. I had this bright green cloth left over from a ruffle skirt of the table cloth I made earlier, so I blended in with this dress fabric, and I think it works. (no one will know).

|Close up of the ribbon trim. I also made a 1/4 inch binding and stitched it onto the edge of the shoulder straps.|
|Silky twisted ribbon trim sewed on to the green trim|
I had enough fabric left over that I made a ruffle trim and stitched it on to the hem for interest and to hold the dress down. (for windy days). Don't want to get the old guys too excited.
Now I am working on the same dress, but a different fabric and adding a little bling bling.
Here is the pattern:
