I’ve had the Burda “Tara” pattern sitting in my online stash for a while, since it was a Friday freebie about 18 months ago in fact. I liked the style and different construction to the norm but I’d never quite got around to making it. I found this lime green and brown cotton voile in the Spotlight clearance wrack some time last summer. I was going to make it into a shift dress to show off the pattern, something Laurel-esque. But I never did. And I probably wouldn’t have worn it anyway! Its very green.
With the weather heating up here (I’m typing this outside on a glorious 28 degree C cloudless day, yey for spring!) I decided to bite the bullet and make a simple throw on dress for days when clingy jersey just seems tooo nasty for my 7+ month pregnant body to cope with!
