I have been looking for some sun-dresses ever since we started getting them in at work. Let me tell you, some of the dresses we get in are totally adorable (though I have no hope of ever fitting in them.. Up to a size 12 in girls? lol), and shopping around I can't find any that are flattering as well as cute.
Cue last night, on a random pattern finding spree. I googled searched "how to make a sun dress" and got a bajillion results, but through surfing (using about.com, I believe..) I found this tutorial:
It's called the dragon dress because of the fabric she used. Wish I could get some of that fabric, but it's either too expensive or not around here, so after a trip to the local department store (need I name it? >.<) I came home with these fabrics:
Two colors instead of the one print.. Mostly because I want a solid strap and some lining to the bust. I love this fabric! ^^
While these are drying, I'm going to try to tat up a quick edge to go along the waist band. No promises, though if it'll be finished in time.
I'll post pictures of the final product and any tatting I may have been able to finish for it. Wish me luck!
