St. John's , Canada






Okay so it is very wintery in Canada right now and my husband and I are happily anticipating our vacation to Cuba in April. Needless to say, I am dreaming of a warmer climate and I was inspired by a McCall’s pattern (5425). This dress is one of hopefully many that I will make before our first vacation as husband and wife!!!!

Material Notes

matte jersey for the dress, unknown fabric for the tie.

      Thanks! I do not have the strongest eye for color. I was even a little worried about the green put the tie matches the dress well. Now it’s time to get some color on myself so it seems!

    I think I have this pattern. I love the bright colors. It does look so tropical and perfect for a hot vacation.

      Thank you! The pattern has two similar styles, one with a tie at the shoulder and the other has a tie around the waist. The pattern style that I chose to work on is quite nice in the front but not as flattering in the back. I feel as if the pattern style with the tie at the waist may be more flattering but either way its a dress to be worn on a hot pretty beach and I will do the dress justice!

      Thank you so much! That is a super nice thing to say and equally nice to hear!
