It was such a great idea to participate to OWOP! I managed to make 5 Banksia in total and I'm very excited about each one of them.
This one is definitely the best out of all of them and probably my favorite dress ever. I had to wear it on the first day because I was too excited to show it off. I used this adorable apple print (yes, the same one of this blouse) that I had saved all winter, waiting for the perfect project.
I used the Banksia bodice and shortened it, omitted the sleeves, made the collar in a contrasting colour and then made a skirt inspired to Pattern Runway Gathered Sundress. It has bias bound gathered pockets and elastic casing at the waist. And, round of applause, the skirt is lined!
Sunday was very busy, I spent most of the day working (I'm a waitress on weekends), came back just in time to bake homemade pizza with my family (YUM) and then I headed back to the city with my boyfriend.
Casual clothes are a must when I work, so I wore this Banksia tank I made with plaid cotton gauze, a leftover from a blouse my mother made for herself. This was extremely fast to make, it's sleeveless and the buttons are not functional (ie there are no buttonholes). I think it looks very cute with my zebra cardigan (best random purchase ever).
See you in a couple of days with the next outfits!
