The good news is that it is SOOO EASY!
The dress is simple: a simple darted band across the top and an A-line skirt. I added a flutter sleeve to the 1" wide shoulder strap. I then embellished with brown ribbon along the top, over the shoulders and at the bottom hem (don't overdo it!). For some real girly fun, I added some flowers cut from leftovers with zig-zag scissors and sewed it to some scrap brown linen. Then I arranged it "corsage-style".
The dress wears great - made of lightweight cotton. Perfect for Summer!
