My Getaway Saltspring


OK, I know it's really cold here now but I just couldn't wait to post these pictures of my Saltspring dress from the wonderful Sewaholic.

I was lucky enough to have a quick break in the Greek Islands recently. While we were there we jumped on a motor bike and visited an idyllic hotel that was perfect backdrop for photographing my Saltspring dress.

I used Pansi a bright floral cotton lawn and I love it! I am quite tall so added a couple of centimeters to the length of the bodice and the skirt. The pattern has a clever lining that means that the top billows out over the elasticated waist perfectly. (The elasticated waist also helps with Holiday tum!)





The length of this dress makes you feel very glamorous and movie star-ish.  I was sad to have to take it off to get back on the motorbike at the end of the trip. So if you have a winter sun getaway planned why not add this to your packing list?



You can buy the pattern here and the fabric here.

Happy sewing xxx
