Summer Dress and shall/ Poncho

There is nothing better than a cotton gauze dress in the summer!

The pattern is a mix of two that were altered a lot. . . The bodice was from an old dress pattern that I shortened and the skirt was a historical Edwardian skirt pattern from butterick that I shortened.
The shall/poncho was made with out a pattern. I copied a neck line from a shirt that I like and measured the rest.

The poncho looks best with jeans and a white tank underneath.
The serger and rolled hem were my best friends on these projects.
