Sometimes, I just feel like blending in. Last Saturday, I was invited to a swimming/children's party. While I did not feel like swimming, I chose an outfit that I thought will blend in with my surroundings. And by the way, I sewed this dress.
I chose 100% cotton with a Kaleidoscope print for this dress, as opposed to what is recommended on the pattern which is knit. The A-line bodice is so easy to make, but the sleeves were a challenge. I had to improvise on the sleeves by adding the white single-fold bias tape on the sleeves.
Necklace: from a shopping trip in the Philippines

This dress is very comfortable, and it's great if you don't have the "perfect" figure.
Here's the pattern I used, available (here). I cut pattern size 16 for this dress. My actual dress size is 10 Petite. -GG-
