I had a blast sewing this dress, mostly because I made a few hilarious rookie mistakes, which I shall not talk about. Ever. Once again, the fabric is a bit of a disaster. (The ‘green like… IKEA’-dress, anyone? They were dyed and permanently crinkled together.) I do love this fabric, but would you believe that I pressed this dress within an inch of its life an hour before taking these pictures? Well, I did, and knowing that it looks like a bad joke… about raisins in a bathtub.
Anyway! I loved the pattern, but I made a few small changes:
1. a shorter, less full skirt and no pockets
2. straps: a bit farther apart in the front and crossed in the back
3. black piping
4. a shorter zipper
IKEA fabric (CECILIA – white cotton dyed dark green), black zipper, black piping
The style is cool and sporty beach wear that can be worn anywhere!
