Cute Silver Checkers Fit and Flare!!!!

Hello everyone!! So if you actually click on a picture you can see that there is checkers/boxes in the fabric!  This is about as close as I can get to checkers, but I think that it still counts!  (the checkers are in the silvery part of the fabric)

So this cute fit and flare I made just for Trey’s cousins wedding on June 13!  I am really excited to see everyone again!  The wedding was up in Canada just across the Michigan boarder.  It was a beautiful wedding, and so much fun!  Can I go back to Canada?

Believe it or not, I bought this fabric at Walmart back in November 2014, and I just haven’t gotten to making anything with it until now.  I had to buy it as soon as I saw it because I just fell completely in love with it.  The lining fabric is just a basic cotton lining that I bought at Joann Fabrics.

Sorry for the horrible blurryness of this photo... its one of my favorites though.

I did use a pattern for this, its McCall’s 6887.  It is kinda funny though, this dress was a complete disaster when I finished it the first time…  I completely forgot to put the back skirt paneling in.  After freaking out as to why this dress wasn’t working, I calmed down and started to watch some Parks and Rec and sat on a pin.  The skirt back was hidden under some pillows that I moved around throughout that evening.  Once I realized the problem everything was fixed and I am absolutely in love with this dress!!!!

Please pardon the begging of my lifeguard tan lines…

Oh and here is a picture of me wearing the dress and a picture of my boyfriend and myself!  Isn’t he awesome!  I still have one more wedding to go this summer, and I still haven’t really figured out what I am wearing to it because it is a baseball themed wedding.  I’m assuming it is more casual, but I will still be making a new dress for the occasion.  (Plus I have been really bored with my wardrobe lately and am thinking about just donating all of it and starting new.)
