Abercrombie & Fitch Inspired Dress

Just before Lauren’s Spring Break she showed me this dress on Abercrombie & Fitch’s website that she just LOVED and of course, had-to-have!  She stated the obvious-“Mommy, you can make this, can’t you?”  I was definitely up for the challenge without having a pattern and also for the price tag of $68.

We had some modifications that we agreed on.  She wanted a tank top with thicker straps(so she could wear it to school) and Lauren liked eyelet with less holes instead of the one A & F used.  We can do that….

Here is the inspiration dress from Abercrombie & Fitch’s website.  The top is navy blue but appears black in the picture.

Lauren is thrilled the way this dress came out!  Lauren also helped sew it and did LOTS of ironing seams.  What a trooper…

I purchased the tank top at Old Navy and both fabrics were from Joann’s for a total cost of $13.

Definitely, “Just Jo” style! In love
