I thought I’d give Tessuti’s Gabby dress a try.
Sometimes you need a beach cover-up that covers the shoulders.
Well, maybe that’s always needed.
Anyway I thought Tessuti’s Gabby dress might fit the bill. Gabby is a loose fit dress with a short sleeve and a nice A-line flare. It has 2 views, the first with a contrast hem panel. As I was planning to slip it on over bathers I thought I could get away with shorter than I’d wear for everyday, so made it without the contrast hem panel.
The fabric is 100% cotton, essential for the beach, in my opinion and hard to find in RTW. Why are so many beach clothes made in icky sticky poly?
And then, of course, there’s the pom poms, essential, for the beach, don’t you think? The seventies are back, yeah baby.
Do you have a favourite beach cover-up, pattern or fabric?
Do you do the pom poms?
Happy stitching! 🌞🌊🏄🍹
