Concessions to the Heat

I am not usually a dress or skirt person (especially considering the number of pants I’ve made) but when the weather is this hot, some concessions must be made.

The author stands in front of a hedge. She wears a white linen shirt with the sleeves rolled up under a V-necked slip-on shift dress, made in a dusky pink fabric with tiny white polka-dots all over. Her hands hang at her sides.

The pattern for this dress came from a library book that had been translated from Japanese, and I liked the lack of fastenings, the loose fit, and the length.

The author stands in front of a hedge. She wears the same white shirt/pink shift dress combo as the previous image. Her hands are in the two patch pockets on the sides of the dress, and it is clearer now that the dress is midi-length.

And the very large pockets, of course!

Close-up of one of the patch pockets of the dress. One of the author's hands is in it, because the pocket blends in really well with the dress. It is a very large pocket.
The author stands in front of a hedge, wearing the same white shirt/pink shift dress outfit. She holds the side seams of the skirt out, so it is relatively flat across the front (where it was rippling with fullness before).

I made this dress before Christmas, like my navy spot pants, and it is definitely coming in handy at the moment! The main dilemma I have is what fabric to make a second one from; I would also like to try and make a skirt as a separate bottom-half, ideally even more voluminous than this one.

Anyways, see ya!
