Just in time

ImageAnd it’s done, and there’s still summer left to use it!

The fabric is a wax print that my sister bought for me in Tanzania, it’s the same on both sides, so I carefully fitted the pattern to be different in the back, very pleased with that back!

Since I wanted the pretty flowers to show, I wanted a dress with a minimum of seams. I choose my old companion Stil 5357, but made it longer and also made the skirt wider. I usually wear my dresses over the knee, so just below is a different feeling, but I like it, makes me feel like a grown up!ImageImage
