Shift Dress for Paradise

I sewed this shift dress days before leaving for Hawaii. I needed something to put over my swimsuit, something to pull on post afternoon shower. Very easy sewing.

I used the pattern below. I did none of the embellishments (pockets, collar, etc.). I used a linen print from Mill End Store. In the end, even with the busy print, I thought it needed a little something.

So I added a tiny pleat at the top, very much like the detail of the Sorbetto Top.

I enjoyed wearing it, and I think I'll be wearing it layered with a cardigan and tights through a few seasons. Still, wouldn't you rather be there?
