This is such an easy pattern! I must thank Flibb for wearing it so well (jump to her blog now - she's making another one in Liberty fabric and silk). There are several necklines to choose from, I had a hunk of green cotton fabric from my trip to Abakhan's in Liverpool and went for the crossover neckline in the pattern photo.
What does a girl do when she's a 12 up top and 14 below? I cut out the bigger size of course.
I needed to transmute into Dolly Parton for the thing to fit.
So I unpicked, re-cut and started again. I grafted the smaller size top onto the larger size bottom and da da!
My West Side Story pose.
The sun poured down on my lovely garden today as I stitched, happy in my work. This dress is soooo comfy. Let's make another one!

Fab isn't it?
The pattern was an Easter present from my big sis in Liverpool. I can't wait to to get stuck in and of course am on the lookout for fabric fabric..
My 'to do pile' is in danger of toppling over. If only I didn't have to work for a living ;-)
I am sitting in my purpose built workspace/making space in my lovely garden listening to Louis Prima. The lilac bush is in bloom, forget me nots sprinkled under the sycamore tree...
