Sea Life Dress

With summer in full swing, I've unpacked a lot of seasonal clothes that I haven't been able to wear in awhile. So here is another dress that I've made, and there are more coming.

I made this dress from my own pattern, it's basically a tent dress that I added an elastic waist to gather it in. My inspiration was 1950's kids beach play clothes and I wear it mainly as a beach cover up. The fabric is from Ikea children's sheets. If you haven't checked out Ikea Hackers, you should, it's awesome to see all the things that people have manipulated Ikea pieces into. I wouldn't call this dress a hack, fabric is fabric whether used in sheets or dresses.

 I'm a reluctant model that's why I keep fading myself into the background. At least I'm having some photoshop fun. One day I'll have a dress form that will do all the modelling for me.
