Summer Mini Dress// The Plan

The heat does not bode well for tight clothing. I immediately am in the mood for breezy clothing that does not show perspiration. I want the fabric to be as close to weightless as possible. I want the pattern to be simple to put together (the less I have to plug in the hot iron, the better). And most of all, I want to be able to wear my dress the same day.

One of my goals, is to actually use all of the sale patterns that I have bought. I tend to get caught up in the designs, but it is beyond time for me to begin sewing some of them up. This pattern has multiple easy options that could be useful. I am thinking that a shirt from this project could be very useful as well.

Materials I will be using:  (1) 1 1/2 yds. of fabric from two different bolts from super store (fabric composite was literally marked, unknown), (2) white thread from left over sewing project, (3) M6288 sewing pattern, view D, size 12

With help from the usual suspects:  (1) Beatrice, my body double, (2) sewing sheers, (3) my new favorite tool for working with knits, a walking foot, (4) Trusty, my seam ripper, (5) clear rulers + french curve, (6) pins + tailors chalk, and (7) Alfred, my sewing machine

In case you missed it, this post is a part of a series: (1) brainstorming, (2) inspiration.
This post is also a part of my thrifty month.
