I came across this pattern a while ago and made Paigee a Red Gingham version and its really cute.
Im not a huge fan of the tie neck but otherwise it is a great pattern.
Ive kept the dress to use as a top for next summer since the elastic back makes it adjustable.
The best news is that I revisited the site http://fiddlehead.blogspot.co.nz/2009/06/finally-let-beach-parties-begin.html and now there is a multisize pattern so Im gonna give it another shot as a dress for next summer too. Will probably make an adjustable elastic neck this time.
I will put up a photo of the new version when I get round to making it.
Thanks fiddlehead. Looking forward to my next version.
