Pink and Gray Dress

I made this pink and gray dress for a wedding this summer.

I used Simplicity 2591, a pattern which I think I'll definitely use again sometime.  So many possibilities! 

Here's a picture of it on, since it's not quite the same on a dress form as on an actual person (though, I don't love being in these pictures...anyone else also have to have your less-than-skilled-at-photography husband take all your pictures?)  I styled it with my pink and gray necklace, a pretty gray cardigan from Target, as well as my favorite gray pumps, also from Target. 
I'm really liking this dress.  It's comfortable, flattering, really cute, and has huge pockets.  And, you know I love pockets!  :)

So cute, Jen! I love it with the cardigan--the fabric you chose for the dress is just so pretty and I love how the sweater makes the gray stand out a bit. Beautiful!

It's so pretty! You could easily dress it up or down too which is great as you'll get wear out of it after the wedding as well. One made from a solid fabric would look great too. I haven't tried making clothing yet, it seems quite scary!

The dress is adorable, great job! I want to start making more clothes for myself/kids but I'm still a little intimidated by a pattern!
