Turquoise dress for hot days

A new favorite colour this year is turquoise. It is such a summery fresh colour, don’t you agree? Here are some turquoise photos for you to enjoy.

Turqoise cat

Turqoise bowlThrifted toy cat, very plastic and very turqoise. I was told his name is Pilchard, and I don’t mind. Bob-Pilchard perhaps then.

And the turqoise bowl – Icouldn’t resist, even though I know I shouldn’t have bought it. It is such a eye candy bowl (for putting candy in), and I like it a lot.

And for those of you who have been reading my blog for a couple of years, you might recognice the turqoise flowery fabric that I made a longn sleaved t-shirt from? I had quite a lot left, that has been “laying around” for two years, until now!

First I copied a t-shirt pattern from a magazine, but as I lay it on the fabric I saw that I could make something bigger, so I made a night gown. But when I put it on it was not as wide as I had imagined it. Acctually it is to tight for a comfortable nightgown, so now it’s a dress!

A summer dress for me, made by me!

I loooove the round neck that I got from this pattern, I’ll use it again on a real t-shirt that does not turn out a dress.

What do you think?

PS: If you like Pilchard too, you can knit the cat!
