fun in the sun(dress) Gathered Grecian

Welcome to our spotlight, Liz from Cotton and Curls!  She is an amazing refashionista who’s style is beyond compare…awesome.  I loved sifting through the volumes of fun refashioning ideas that she’s done, and reading about her cute family and life…and she’s from Seattle, makes me like her even more!
here are a few of her projects that i adored:
Crazy girl over here took a huge mumu and made it into two fun little numbers!

Hello icandyhandmade readers! I’m SO excited to be apart of this sundress project! Mainly because one, I love love love dresses, especially summery ones and two, I love to sew and spread the love of it. A little about me…I’ve been married almost 4 years and I’m a mommy of an almost 2 year old. I’m crazy about those 2 guys in my life and sewing. Not just crazy, addicted. As seen through my blog.
With this dress I decided to go with a light knit in yellow which means, no need for hemming (knit doesn’t fray much) and it is quite flowy and comfortable. After you have finished making this super easy dress, just slap a cute belt on it and you’re ready to rock and roll!
At the end…you don’t need to hem. That simple!
