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.

Beautiful grouping Ruthie. The dress will be perfect for summer. You can dress it up with heels or down with a pair of flat sandals.
