Each year we do a dress up party for our work Christmas party and it’s fitting because it’s a sewing and embroidery company. Some people opt to make their own costumes, while others order their outfits online. This year when browsing through ideas I saw the 50’s Pop Art theme and since I’ve always being a huge fan or Roy Lichtenstein I was keen to make my own dress.
This was mostly a mash up between my previous Lekala Dress top and also the Butterick 5949 skirt. I also just added to two yellow panels to break up the red and blue dots.
Here is a photo of me and my co-worker Michelle who also made her own 50s dress from New Look pattern 6824.
If you’re looking for a great bag to take to the beach with you this summer, I would highly recommend the Craftsy Senna Tote Bag! I made a test bag using some material I had in my stash but then ended up loving it. However, I still plan on making a new one so I have a a couple of bags to choose from.
My Beach Senna Tote Bag
This size of this bag is perfect to fit your towel, wallet, phone, sunscreen and even your spare clothes! I was also considering going to Cotton On and getting one of those cushion beach pillows.
