My First Cottesloe Swimsuit

Not only did I make myself a swimsuit from Megan Nielsen's new Cottesloe pattern, I also happened to conquer my fear of knits and make my very first swimsuit! I've had a swimsuit on my make list for over a year now and even got all the fabric and notions to get going. I thought I knew which pattern I'd make too, but of course, nothing happened after that and this project fell to the wayside. Enter the perfect combination: the release of this pattern + finding this beautiful fabric.

Orchid Midi Dress

Let me start off by saying how much I love sewing wovens. If you take a scroll through all my previous makes, it's very easy to see that woven dresses are my favorite and most made garment both for myself and for my daughter. With all that being said, I was really excited to be a host for this month's Sew My Style and even more excited to finally sew the Orchid Midi Dress from Chalk and Notch.
