I’m in need of a new swimsuit coverup. I have no idea where the one I wore last year went, but apparently it grew legs and walked off. I’ve been seeing a ton of strapless dresses with a flounce and decided that was exactly what I wanted to make. So, I brainstormed how I could put this one together, shopped my stash (and found a fabulous buttermilk from Emma One Sock that I’ve been hanging onto for ages), and set to work this weekend. The picture on the left is the finished dress (you can see a closeup of the flounce here) and I’m pleased with the end result – although, I’m thinking of skipping using this as a coverup, adding a belt to it, and wearing it ‘out’ instead!
I’m contemplating making a tutorial for this design, but only if there is enough interest. Be sure to comment in this thread if you’d like to see how to make this dress for yourself – if I have enough comments\tweets\etc. I’ll work on a post for later in the week!
