Another easy knit dress which I have dubbed the vacation dress because while I like it I don't think I have the balls to wear this anywhere other than at a holiday resort. It is very low cut at the back and combined with the giraffe/zebra hybrid print I think it might be a bit much for popping down the shops!
Gorgeous Things Ann made this recently as a pool cover up and for that the pattern is perfect. EricaB also made a stunning version of this that doesn't look too low cut, but I guess I am a shorty by comparison and should have adjusted the pattern.
McCall's calls this an easy, 1 hour pattern and it is certainly easy and probably can be made in an hour, just not by me - slow sewer extraordinaire. I really like the front cowl drape, but if I make this again I will raise the back so I don't feel quite so bare. That said I'm going to slap the pictures of me wearing it on the internet......
Sorry the pictures are a bit dark, we are having typical Hong Kong summer weather at the moment - vile!
