The Safari Dress

Somebody stop me! Maybe I do need that self-help group I mentioned last week. Yes, Lola needed another dress. We'll just go with that. :)

The dress in action!

We spent two days at Parc Safari with some friends. Instead of making healthy snacks and packing our luggage the night before, I made Lola a Safari Dress.  I don't think the kids minded the chips and peanut butter jelly sandwiches :)

The pattern is my own, similar to the vintage fabric dress here.  The fabric was 5$ per metre from Fabricland a few months ago and is a stretchy cotton. I used the same fabric to make bias tape for the top edge and armhole ties.

Here are a few other random pictures of our trip.

There was a fabulous water park.

I love summer!
Thanks for reading!
