Made my own Mod Cloth dress
I saw this dress on Mod Cloth months ago, way before it was warm enough to wear, and thought, "Wow, that's a unique design. What a weird combination, actually. But it's cute! I could make that!"
So I bought some grey cotton for like $3/yard at JoAnn, used some ivory lace I already had, and added four (weird, in my opinion) two-hole buttons with the metal hole grommets. The Mod Cloth ones are probably fabric-covered, but mine aren't.
I did not have the right pattern at all, so I had to modify one (Butterick B4915, now out of print).
What's funny is, I thought this was a weird color combination, but shortly after I had cut this dress out I saw another, very similar one from Lulu's:
I guess grey and ivory is a color combination to watch this season!
