Pattern: Simplicity 1805 top that was altered to make a dress.
Fabric: Black Ruffle Stipe Knit from Fabric Mart for a total of $4.80. It's nice to be able to whip up a simple dress for special occasions. It's better to plan ahead, but it works.
I was about 2 hours away from being dressed when I decided to make the purse so I just covered a place mat and a button to make it quick.
