I sure love working with the fun ladies behind Patterns for Pirates and Made for Mermaids. Their “Sew, What do I Wear?” Blog Tours are always so inspiring. I wore my maxi dress from the Holiday Edition all winter long and my romper from the Valentines Edition still remains the most comfortable thing in my closet!
For this go-round, it’s all about vacation style. With a husband who’s incredibly busy work season starts as soon as the temperature rises, our big vacations usually take place during the fall and winter. This summer we are escaping to the lake for almost a week though and I can’t wait! Bring on the sunshine, beaches, and unlimited cousin time (translates to kids being entertained and all the parents enjoying a bit of relaxing!).
I used the P4P Timeless Tunic for a simple easy-to-wear dress. (If you’ve noticed, my last three makes have all been elastic waist dresses so I just might need an intervention!) I did it in a pretty floral chambray and added a wide crochet lace trim to the hem (both the fabric and trim came from LA).
I like that I can take it up a notch for a night in town with just a few accessories. Honestly though, I think I’ll be wearing this over a swimsuit to easily take me from the beach to the milkshake shop in style.
I really like the style of the bodice and can see using it as a base for a woven tee in the future. I also think it’s the perfect base to add a cute collar. My mind is always racing with possible hacks each time I sew up a new pattern. There are tons of cute possibilities with this one!
Head over to the Made for Mermaids blog for a look at the other cute ladies joining me today and here is a little peek at all the amazing bloggers joining in this week.
