Cabo San Sundress

Portland, Oregon...






I’ve had the Chantilly pattern from Colette Patterns since Christmas, and fabric for it for almost as long. It’s taken me awhile to get to it. But then, I needed a sundress.
See, we’re going to Cabo San Lucas this summer, and when I saw this happy Day of the Dead fabric, I just knew it needed a home in a sundress for me, to wear in Cabo.
So I got some matching yellow cotton, and sewed it up!
I always having sizing problems—I even did a small-bust adjustment, and it still wasn’t enough, so I had to go back in and take more out the bust. Other than that, I love it so much. I love how full the skirt it, I love the happy colors.
And I can’t wait to wear it in Cabo!
