Yesterday we enjoyed the very first day of our summer vacation, and tomorrow we’re leaving for Greece – or Chania in Crete to be more specific. The summer weather we’re having in Denmark isn’t the best at the moment, so we’re looking forward to warmer temperatures and lots of relaxation.
A few days ago, I promised Ronja that I would make her a new summer dress for our vacation. Do you remember back when she picked this fabric? I wanted to use it for this one, and I gave Ronja a choice between a layered dress from Ottobre, and a shirred dress like the top I made for me which also fit her – and she chose a shirred dress without even blinking.
I used bias tape for the hem and the ties, but besides that it is just as simple as the top I made earlier – a square piece of fabric, sewn together, and shirred at one end.
Ronja seemed pretty pleased, and the dress is now packed in the suitcase with the other ones – since we’re leaving tomorrow morning at 3:45 am (oh oh…). Modeled pics from under distant skies will be here in about a week.
One week of sunny warm weather, our choice of swimming pool or beach, yummy Greek food, a few outings, and lots of taking things as they come.
MMmmmmmm – see you in a week!
