and also featuring my new board and the beautiful beach at Hawks Nest, NSW.

I picked up some 100 per cent cotton lace from the Lincraft sale. I thought it would make a nice beach dress, something to throw on after a swim.

I used a tried and true pattern, Simplicity1609 making it even more mini. I eliminated the centre and back seams, because the last thing you need when sewing lace is lots of seams.

I used bias on the neck and arms and cut around the ‘brides’ to make the hem.

An easy and fun dress, though I doubt it will meet sun smart recommendations.
