I did something very out of character for me. I actually purchased a pattern. Can you believe it? I have had my eyes on The Staple Dress for a looong time, and it finally popped up in Parcel #3 on the Perfect Pattern Parcel. I felt better about spending money since I would get five patterns, and some of the money would go towards charity. It’s such a great idea! 
I decided to cut up a silk skirt I had made but rarely wear to test out the pattern. I only had enough to make a shirt and even had to do some piecing which you can’t see in the pictures.

I really like the fit because it’s comfortable, and it breathes so well for hot summer days.

Pattern: The Staple Dress, I really like this pattern and have plans to make more (dresses and tops) in the near future!
Fabric: I cut up a skirt and kept the original lettuce edge hem. I originally received the fabric as a gift at my bridal shower. (Isn’t that the best gift ever?)
Time: 2 hours
Cost: $3 for the pattern

I like how this shirt can be easily dressed down or dress up.
