It's really hard for me to find a short dress that works for my body shape. I'm six feet tall and round through the hips, which means that most dresses are too short and the proportions are off. But instead of mourning my inability to wear something breezy and stylish, I think I'll just make my own. I've got a sewing machine and there is no reason I shouldn't at least give it a try. Here are some styles I want to model my patterns after.
