As soon as I made this dress I thought Yay! I found my honeymoon in Hawaii dress! Its long its made from knit so perfect to throw over after going to the beach!! Then I don't have to worry if I have white legs!! hehe.
I seriously can't wait for this year so many exciting things! Wedding, Hawaii, trips to Melbourne, saving to buy our house, my sister had her baby so watching him grow up is so amazing. I looked back at my photo album from 2012 and.. what?!! I had no photos!! I was thinking Gee what did I do last year! I guess I didn't take any annual leave all year after starting a new job so maybe forgot to take photos or do anything fun.
I did start my sewing blog though so maybe that's where all the time went! Anyways I went and bought myself a brand new small camera so this year I have plenty of photos and don't feel like the time has passed by too quickly.

I had this pattern and didn't really think too much of it. It looks really nice and the sleeves, neck and design of the dress is great. It wasn't until I saw this version on Pattern Review by JanleeC which got me wanting one of my own. I loved her longer version and thought that would be perfect for me.
This dress was made in a light weight knit material.
I just added the length to the skirt. I made it go a little wider at the hip to accommodate for the longer length. I think I also made the elastic a little bit smaller to ensure it wasn't showing too much of my chest. This was an easy fix and can be for anyone else to ensure you get the perfect fit for you.
I would definitely sew this number again and recommend to others.
