Elisalex on the Shore

Tonight, another By Hand London dress.  This evening I went on a quick hike down to the ocean for a swim with my friend Benny.  Who, by the way has the most delicious food blog.  After the swim I threw on my dress and we managed to get a few shots.  The pattern is the Elisalex dress, I altered it slightly, using the original bodice pieces and opting for a gathered skirt instead.

I bought this fabric earlier this spring from Gala Fabrics here in Victoria.  I loved the print of this stretch cotton sateen immediately.  I originally planned to sew it up into a floral bomber with Papercut Patterns Rigel Bomber.  But, the more I thought about it, the more I realized that I just wasn’t going to wear a floral bomber jacket.  Instead, I went with yet another dress!
