Wish you were there – a throwback to summer

Goodness, where has the time gone? It only seems like yesterday that I was on holiday in Mallorca wishing it might be just a little bit cooler – now that autumn has started to bite I look back at those pictures with yearning for the heat.


We spent a thoroughly wonderful forthnight in a villa in central Mallorca – what a wonderful island! It was our first time there and already I’m hoping to be able to go back soon!


So this dress with its palm fronds and sunsets is a fitting reflection of the mood of these holidays.

It’s a really simple shift dress with French darts from an older edition of Burdastyle. I traced the pattern before I thought of labelling the pattern parts properly so I’m unable to identify the magazine it came from.

Sigh – wish I were there!

    Gorgeous! and the holiday looks that way too.
    Now I’m not going to rest until I have worked out what pattern that is! It looks like 09/2012 #109, but yours has no sleeves..hmm..
