This cute boho-style dress is on my “love it” list of DIY garments.  I’m also in love with the gorgeous crepe fabric I found from the Michael Levine Loft.  It’s a fun print that reminds me of popcorn. Its light weight makes it a great choice for spring and summer garments.

    Hi Anita,

    I love this dress, the shoulders caught my attention. I just wrote down the pattern number so I can purchase. You will see this on me and my blog this summer. Great work as usual.

    Hi Anita,

    This dress is so chic and very feminine. The sleeves are eye catching and I love the fabric choice. A perfect dress when you want to feel girly girl pretty. So pretty!

    P.S. I enjoyed your interview on “That Sewing Blab”. You are well on your way to great success in a God blessed way!!!

    You pull off every outfit that you make Anita. I don’t think I’ve seen one bad garment on you. Btw have you ever been to Mood fabrics in LA? I’m a beginner seamstress but I’ve heard amazing things about Mood…such as they buy fabric from top designers in fashion and resell it for cheaper…I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of them but hopefully you can give your opinion/thoughts on their store!

    I like your fabric choice much better than that of the McCall’s pattern. I also like view D better than the tiered skirt. Great choice! Its really beautiful on you.

    Anita, I love the fact that you have been blogging for a little more than year or two? and you’re blowing up. The fabric choice and styling is always fabulous. I am interested in seeing your feature in Mimi’s new magazine. God bless you in all your endeavors. I will catch “That Sewing Blab” when it’s posted to YouTube. Keep allowing Him to shine through YOU!!
