Summer Dress 2 - Gone to the Beach

Dear Laura,

"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." - Ferris Bueller

On Thursday I took heed of Ferris Bueller's very famous words, took the day off work and went to the beach. It was wonderful, there is nothing quite like last minute plan changes and instead of being at my desk,  I found sand between my toes. I love the beach, I want to swim in the sea everyday, I want to build sandcastles and sleep with the sun warming my body. We went to Assateague island which is a national park with white sand beaches, wild horses and turquoise seas. It was bliss and conveniently it gave me a chance to wear my new dress.

I whipped this one up last weekend and it was surprisingly easy, I carefully measured myself and cut and hoped it would fit around me. I learnt how to put in, what I think might be called a yoke, which made the arm holes and head holes nice and neat and easy to deal with. I made the darts a little shallower and they turned out fairly well and this time I put a zip up the back. That was the best, it made everything so much easier. I put to pockets on the front because dresses with pockets are the best, my sewing here wasn't great but I love how it turned out. It is so comfortable and it will be a staple in my wardrobe for a long time!

Lots of love
