This weeks theme at Sew Weekly is Nautical. I made this dress using a pattern by New Look #6912.

The bottom part is a canvas material:
This dress was a chore to make, but I got through it. I do however need to make the skirt part more fitted. I am pulling it back in the photos. Sorry no face pics today, no time for hair and makeup. It happened to be overcast this morning, so I quickly wanted to take advantage of the lighting before the hubs ran off to work.
We have a kiddi pool in the back yard, so this is my rendition of what's available - nautical speaking.
