That’s a nice pattern for a beach party dress that I wore a lot during my holiday in Spain. It’s a little bit too revealing for my taste and attracts a lot of attention. Regarding the fabric, I used a striped jersey fabric and omitted the back zipper.

    Wow, you look amazing in this! I can see why you got a lot of attention – the stripes are very evocative! People must have been thinking, “Where did she get THAT dress?”

    This is going in my favourites and I’m going to make a shorter version for my holiday, I think :)
