Alas, I did not make Phia's cute little dress in the last post- it was a sweet ebay find. But I am pretty happy to say that I  put together my dress, and then had the guts to wear it out.
My biggest problem with picking dresses is that I either look too matronly or too much like a teenager. I wanted something that was a blend of Anthropologie and Free People- a dress that was both sweet and hip. I used a spring Robert Kaufman print that I literally had about a 1/4 of a yard left to work with, and for the skirt I found a very soft jersey knit. 

It was quite a departure for me- both in constructing it, and then later wearing it. But, being that it was super comfortable and stretchy, it made it easy to chase the kids around the reception party.
