My cousin got married a few weeks ago and I desperately needed a dress for her wedding. I had my eye on the Danielle dress from Steven Alan, but when I finally decided to buy it, it was sold out in my size. So, I went ahead and made my own. I drafted the pattern and used a lovely polka dot linen from Gorgeous Fabrics that I had on hand and a cotton voile for the bodice lining. I had purchased the fabric earlier in the summer with the intention of making a pair of shorts, but in the end this turned out to be a much better use of the fabric. Luckily, I  had just enough of it to make the dress. I stayed pretty faithful to the original design, only omitting the pockets.
