Sarong to Sabrina

Added Oct 18, 2008

by nelliethemer...

Hamilton, New Ze...






I bought a sarong during a holiday in Rarotonga, which was useful on a desert island but at home in an inland city it is a little out of context! I never paid much attention to this pattern until oonaballoona made her couch dress – and I loved it!

Material Notes

Thin cotton sarong material – bought in Raro.





Oonaballoona’s wicked couch dress

    Lovely dress in a lovely fabric! And a rather belated thanks for your kind words about my shirt.

    i’m waaaay behind on what everyone’s been making, and i just happened to catch this… i can’t believe my couch dress gave you an idea for this loveliness! this is gorgeous. makes me wanna try a sabrina, possibly in a fabric meant for a lighter piece of furniture.

    Hi, thanks everyone. At the moment it does stay up and feels quite secure. I haven’t had the chance to wear it much though (a bit too cold yet!) so I will let you all know if I have any embarrassing mishaps!

    Looks nice! Same question as MJB14: does it stay up?

    Looks lovely – I really like this as a strapless dress. Does it stay up ok?
