My sister is going to Cape Verde on holiday this month and asked me to make her a dress… She said that she wanted one “exactly like that one that Eva Longoria is wearing in the Magnum advert”. I took a look at it and I made one NOTHING like it… hahahaha. Though I think this is better because it won’t show her boobs too much.
She loves green, so I bought this lightweight cotton and lined the skirt with silk lining. Hope she likes it… I now have to post it to her in Holland, but hopefully you’ll like it too.
Cotton fabric, silk lining, invisible zipper
Pattern of the Week
You’ll want to wear this dress to tiki parties, spring weddings, and afternoon dates...
