Game Day Dress

Tutorial for this cute Game Day dress with a square draped skirt by Melly Sews

Today I’m going to show you this cute Game Day Dress tutorial.

If you’ve ever read my about me page, you know I’m married to a football coach. Seasons at our house are divided into Football season, Not Football season, and Spring Football season.  And Football season starts in August.

So it was high time I made myself a game day dress – much cooler than shorts for the first scrimmage of the year in the August heat.

Tater took these pictures when we got home from the scrimmage – and did a good job, I think. He did have some help from the autofocus and tripod, but still. Not bad.

You’ll probably see more Tater taken photos as we move through football seasons. Hubby is pretty busy until sometime in November.

    Hi Melissa, I’m not trying to be nosy, but are you in Austin? My husband went to McCallum (many many moons ago) which is why I’m asking? We currently live in Round Rock. I love your blog and have picked up quite a few sewing tips from you, so thank you for all you do. Kim – txkickerbelle at yahoo (dot) com

    Super cute!!! Found you on Brassy’ Apples link party. I’m a mom of a high school football player and would love to show my spirit in a cute dress like this instead of the awful boxy t-shirts that I wear every week.
