Summer Salsa – Crowd Source Fashion Design

Last year I came across some fabulous fabric at JoAnn’s and thought that it would make a great dress for a local fundraiser called Summer Salsa. The event raises funds for EOA Children’s House, a therapeutic preschool for abused and neglected children. I’ve volunteered for the agency for a number of years and was excited to support it.

The fabric sat in my stash for a year before I decided to whip something up. I pinned it on my mannequin and asked for feedback from all of my Facebook friends. It ended up being one of my most popular posts. People like online fashion designing! Here were the options:

It was fun and I loved the look.
