It Worked

Today it's nice and warm, really warm. Love the dress, it took a lot of tweaking to get the straps right but I think it was worth it.
It occurred to me that I tend to stick to the same color palette. I made this zipper pull to match a maxi dress I made last year and it matches this dress too. I don't think I will wear it like this to work, it's a bit to much bling.

Inside view, love the color of the lining, reminds me of a cool Caribbean ocean.


Didn't get to the jacket but next weekend is a long one and I hope to get a ton of summer sewing done.
Faye here's an idea how about a month of Summer Dresses blog?

Your dress is great. I love the fabric! The style looks really good on you! You are making me want to sew for myself again. You grandson is adorable. King's Island? My daughter went there once years ago with her friend's family.

This is so pretty! The fabric is really pretty without being too fussy and I love your idea of zipper pulls. I may just have to steal that idea for some of my dresses. Thank you for the inspiration!
