A Spot of Dressmaking

I bought some funky comic strip fabric a while ago.  Mainly I bought it because it was aqua (I'm a sucker for aqua!) but also because of the funky comic print.

Wasn't really sure what I was going to do with it.  But then I realised what a fab beach slouchy dress is would make!  And seeing as I am off on holiday soon I got to work.

Last year I made a top with a cowl neckline. The pattern was from Lekala.co.  I love this website as you plug in your measurements and they email you a custom PDF pattern within minutes to your size!  It was pattern 4119.

I decided to use that pattern and instead of adding the waistband, I would just lengthen the top to a dress and hem the bottom edge.

I just love the way it turned out!
