Making: a cloud dress


Gotta love a dress with clouds on it. I've been wearing it layered up on these cold winter days with jeans and a cardi. I realised that my winter wardrobe is pretty much all dark colours. A stark contrast to the prints and colour of my summer wear.
It's been unusually quiet on the crafting front until I spotted this dress pattern as I flicked through a Frankie magazine at the library. I hadn't heard of SewKnitLove. I loved the print they used for their Sarah dress and knew it would be perfect for this organic linen/cotton print I had in my stash.

I printed the pattern at home and only half of the markings came through as I don't have colour cartridges in my printer. So be warned. Usually the print at home versions of digital patterns are black and white. It's a simple pattern so it wasn't hard to recreate the lines but a beginner sewer might have been freaking out. I had a moment.
I love the shape of this dress. And it has pockets! The pattern can be made up in woven or knit fabric. 
I have a chambray stripe Sarah dress with a longer hem cut out, I think it will be perfect to throw on for the many trips to the beach this summer.
