My Sunny Sun Dress


I hope you all had a great 4th of July. Our 4th of July week was coming along quite nicely until a fire started near the foothills of where we were staying (Santa Barbara). Within 24 hours of when the fire began, we had ash falling on us. Eventually, the power was out and we went home sooner than planned, but I bet you can't guess what I did when I got home?



Sunny Dress



Yep, I made my revised sun dress. I am very stoked on this design, because it captures the look of my Lola apron. Plus, the design has options. I can wear it as a halter top (tied behind my neck), or I can button the neck straps to the back and wear it as a strappy sun dress. Here, I'll show you....





The back has elastic. Which, like my last dress, makes it forgiving in size fluctuations.



I am diggin the green polka dotted fabric. Who can go wrong with Anna Maria Horner's fabric?

Before I add sun dresses to the shop, I still want to make a few more modifications to the way the dress is sewn up. In the mean time, I have new fabric in my fabric store that I was able to make 4 new aprons with. They should be up tomorrow. Here's a sneak peak at some of the fabric I used.

That dress is adorable! LOVE the fabric you chose. Can't wait to order a matching one!

Just darling! Are the straps wide enough to hide undergarments, or is it strapless bra all the way?

Pretty Ditty said...

I am wearing an undergarment, or "regular" bra (he, he, he) in the second and third picture and a strapless in the first. So the answer is yes.

Thanks =)
