Maranda’s Cold Shoulder Dress

Recently, I was commissioned by a friend to make her some clothes, and one of the dresses we decided on was Simplicity 1623 and she picked out a floral linen/cotton knit from GirlCharlee.com fabrics. I had never ordered from GirlCharlee.com, but they had fabulous service and quick shipping, as well as great prices for knit fabrics. They also included a card with a few swatches on it in the order, so that was really neat. I would definitely order from them again for another project in the future.
