Spring Dress & new SWAP Plan
Despite there still being snow on the ground its officially spring and we've now moved over to British Summer Time. This inspired me to sew up a little tee shirt dress in a fun leaf print in shades of purple, teal blue and emerald green.
This uses my old favourite New Look 6735 lengthened into a dress and with little cap sleeves. Should be great in the summer to throw on with sandals and be comfortable.
I wanted to use my new skirt in SWAP since I discovered it is a dark navy (and not black), so worked the plan hard using a purchased item - this denim blazer.
This then makes the rejuggled SWAP plan look like this, only needing two knit tops and a skirt to complete, so completely doable before the end of April.
