I found this fabric at Joanns on the sale rack and knew I had to make a sundress out of it.  I made it for my vacation to Mexico and finished it the weekend before.  All I had left to do was sew on a hook and eye above the zipper.  I thought, "oh well, I'll do that tomorrow".  Well 'tomorrow' I broke my arm, and needless to say, the hook and eye got left off!

I did use a Simplicity tank top pattern for the bodice.  Then just added a waistband and a gathered rectangle for the skirt.

Life is too short to wear boring clothes.

Well the dress looks pretty easy to get on over a cast. It's a good think you didn't try to make a parka or something Cheesy
I absolutely LOVE the dress. It's so beyond pretty.

I'm also kind of a sucker for paisley, as Boo_its_Brittany says.

One question: Where's your matching sling? Cheesy

Thanks everyone!

One question: Where's your matching sling? Cheesy
I did wish I had a pretty sling instead of the boring navy blue one I got from Urgent Care.  Sadly I didn't have enough range of motion to do any sewing until lately, and I still don't have enough strength to operate a pair of scissors.  (I did buy a rotary cutter yesterday!)  Since the cast comes off in a week, though, I think I'll focus my efforts elsewhere.   Smiley

Angelicus, the pattern I used was Simplicity 3956. http://www.simplicity.com/p-2069-misses-tops.aspx
I made a cute tank top from this pattern too, then broke the zipper and never got around to fixing it.

I love the fabric, and the style of the dress. I hope your arm gets better soon! I've never broken a bone, but I tore a tendon a few years back, and if broken bones hurt as much as that, I wish you an abnormally speedy recovery  Cheesy

Never underestimate the power of suggestion.

I am interested in personal swaps for fabric and quilting squares. PM me if you're interested!
