I was lucky enough to spend 5 days in Palma during our half term break.
We went expecting cool weather but managed some lovely sunshine providing a photo opportunity for my new dress!
The fabric was a gift from my parents last year when they went to Malaga and found a lovely fabric shop. It has been waiting for the perfect pattern….yes, you guessed it…The Ruby dress from Simple Sew.
It is the perfect pattern for my figure and I am really loving these twirly skirts! IMG_3339.JPG



I once again bought a 2 cm belt from Harlequin to wear with it. I think they make such a difference to the dresses I sew.

Palma is a gorgeous city full of history, old quaint streets and boats!
Pattern: The Ruby Dress Simple Sew
Fabric : 2 metres beautiful Spanish cotton
Notions 22 inch zip and belt from Harlequin
Wonky Factor: 9/10 I love it to wear. Perhaps loses a point as the zip slipped down a little after a massive sandwich and chips in Hard Rock Cafe!
