I saw this bikini pattern last year and thought it would make a cute sundress. I bought the pattern through the online BurdayStyle store since I didn't have the magazine. I made up the dress pretty quickly but wasn't crazy about the shape when I just added a gathered rectangle skirt.
Skip ahead a year and right after I altered this skirt, I remembered this dress. A couple of zips through the sewing machine with the side seams, and it's now wearable and quite cute, if I do say so myself. Perfect for a day at the beach!The tie top provides a surprising amount of bust support! I originally planned to sew in cups but just got lazy during construction. No problem (for small-busted me, anyway). I can still frolic in the waves with no worries.
