I used the Lou Box Top and made it into a dress for Kaitlyn.
The front pocket seemed perfect for the denim and when the dress isn't belted it hangs perfectly straight.
I found Sew Bon's post on her changes for the top to the dress, Initially, I added the 5 inches to the dress but after Meredith tried on the dress, this was too much. The fabric is a bit heavier and my girls are like me, more of a straight shape. The amount I used was about 3 inches of a grade. I added 15 inches for the length of the dress and this was perfect. Kaitlyn is right at 5'8"
The fabric is sold out but it is a tencel denim from Style Makers Fabric. The fabric is perfect for the dress and I have had it for several months, so happy I thought of it for this project.
One more change, I added pockets to the dress. Kaitlyn loves pockets and wanted them in her wedding dress. Her sisters told her no!

Kaitlyn likes to talk about ways to wear her clothes. Lots of ideas with jackets, cardigans, shoes/boots and belt and no belt.
I think this one will be a great asset to her professional wardrobe, in fact, she wore it today. At 9 a.m., I got this text - What shoes should I wear with my denim dress? Sperry tennis shoes (as in this photo shoot), brown Sperry, brown booties or black flats. My response any of those. I didn't ask what she went with but my guess is the Sperry tennis shoes, her favorites!
