DIY Vintage-Inspired Yellow Floral Dress

I made this dress over 3 years ago, and it’s still going strong!

Skill level: This sewing project would be good for intermediate sewers.
Time commitment estimate: A few hours, depending on skill level.

I wish I had put pockets in it when I made it, but I suppose I could always add them later on. I used this pattern (New Look 6180) and went with the short sleeve option that has the cut out in it. It didn’t take that much longer and is a cute extra detail.

I took this photo below when I had just finished the dress a few years ago, and we hadn’t had Jackson for that long. He hated this dress form at first. Hate-hated it. But thankfully he’s used to it now and no longer barks at it.
