Okay, here’s the first one


This is the dress I made for myself.  The single yard of fabric cost me right about $3 including shipping, and I already owned matching thread.  I used a pattern I had on hand for a little swim dress, but I made it a bit longer (can you IMAGINE if it were 3″ shorter???).  I added small darts under the boobs too to give it some shape.  I absolutely LOVE it.  It is just about the most comfortable garment I own!

I wore it to the beach for our anniversary – we went back to the beach where we were married and went for a long walk and watched the sunset.  It was ideal beach wear and I was cool and comfortable.  For the most part, I think I’ll wear it around the house, or as a swimsuit cover up on the way to the community pool.  The fabric is a bit thin, and it shows a little more arm flab than I normally like for going out and about.  It’s absolutely PERFECT though for relaxing at home!
