Last summer I was inspired by I Love You, Man and the darling outfits Rashida Jones wears--I've blogged about them before!--and I really wanted to copy a cute sheath dress she wears. Navy, yoked, with wide white lace down the center and cap sleeves. This is the best screen shot I could find, unfortunately, so you'll have to watch the movie!
It's great to use the same pattern twice--you only have to cut out the paper once, and you know if it fits you once you make the first version!
So I know they're not recent, but there are some of my cute-and-easy dresses from last summer (that blue one I think of as a particular success). Wonder what my faves will be this summer...?
