Ok, summer is basically over here in the Netherlands, nevertheless, I totally forgot to share the tide dress that I made for our eldest. It reminds me of summer and makes me wish we still had some summer left.
Last year I made this tide halter top from Sofiona Designs. During testing, my first version of the bodice turned out a bit big for our girl, so I decided to not finish it and attach a skirt later on. This summer I made a tide dress by just attaching a skirt to the bodice that I already had.
I had a hard time finding the right colour combination for the skirt. In the end I found the perfect fabric combination, but then I didn’t have enough of the fabric. So I decided to colour block the skirt, isn’t colour blocking always the answer… ;). I love the result and so does our daughter. Unfortunately, she only wore it a few times before fall started, but I hope she can still wear it next year.
The Tide halter dress/top is such a lovely pattern, and of course I love the colour blocking on the sides of the bodice. You can make both a top and a dress with it, both with the eye-catching back with the straps, such a cute detail.
Fabric: the bodice are scraps from other people during our sewing weekend. The fabrics from the skirt come from my own stash.
