The little isle I call home is one degree north of the equator. We do not experience the four seasons. Instead, what we have are 365 days of summer with an average of 179 days of cool rainy days. While all the dresses I have made are essentially good for the weather here, I wanted a dress that spell summer fun for me. I ended up choosing a blue and white print which reminded me of a beach parasol and used a 1950s mail order pattern to sew it up.
