I've been itching to make myself a dress for the longest time, and when I bought Pip's Sew La Tea Do book, I instantly fell in love with the Too Cute Tunic Dress.
Unfortunately, I didn't choose the most appropriate fabric colour for my white pasty Irish skin tone. Check out the flourescent white legs!
I made the M/L size with the full length arm so it's a really nice and comfy fit, even for lounging around on the couch. The only change that I made was to lower the front neckline a bit to allow for my ample cleavage.
As a little extra embellishment, I added a ribbon along the seam where the bodice meets the skirt. I would have preferred green, but I only had pink in the stash, so pink it was!
But my very favourite bit...... POCKETS! I love pockets - pockets are essential for me.
Of course now I have so many ideas for different fabric combinations - plain bottom, printed bodice. A shorter version for a tunic top... the possibilites are endless.
Oh, and by the way - Happy New Year!
