I did a little sewing this week! When Sophie at ProjectAGRunway posted this free pattern, I had to try it!
I used a black eyelet fabric, which had stretch to it. Since the eyelets are basically little holes in the fabric, I put a leotard on underneath the dress. That is the turquoise that can be seen. I kind of like that, because I can change the color of the leotard and make the dress look different!
I think the only thing I did different than the pattern instructions was the armholes are a little smaller.
If made with the appropriate fabric, I think this dress pattern could serve as a swimsuit coverup too.

Thank you to Sophie for making this great pattern available for free! I had no problems sewing it, and it fits perfect! I've started another dress with the pattern and hope to finish soon :)
