DIY Hot Pink Shift Dress

DIY Hot Pink Shift Dress
I love a simple shift dress in an awesome color, so when I picked up this amazing fabric at G Street for only $6.00 in the clearance bin I completely fell in love.  This fabric is even more beautiful in person, it’s hot hot hot pink that feels a bit like a silk nylon.  I needed something quick and easy so I used this Butterick 5211 pattern that doesn’t fight with the color.  The only alterations made were I add three inches to the sleeves and shortened the hem.

Dress: DIY
Heels: Jimmy Choo love this suede version
Shades: Prada

    You REALLY make me want to get a sewing machine know that!? It seems everything you touch turns to gold (my workouts have been fantastic after using the Cellucor you recommended.)

    I think I may scout a machine out, do you have any recommendations for a newbie?

      Thank you Georgina, FYI Cellucor is a bit addictive lol

      Brother is a great reliable brand. Here is one onsale that would be great to start with
