Turquoise Dress for Summer Days

Turquoise – a new favorite colour this year. It has really been speaking to me lately. And it is such a summery fresh colour, don’t you agree?

Here are some turquoise photos for you to enjoy.

Thrifted toy cat, very plasticy and very turquoise. I was told his name is Pilchard, and I don’t mind. Bob-Pilchard perhaps then.

And the turquoise bowl, that is just so very beautiful.

I couldn’t resist getting it, 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 recognize the turquoise flowery fabric that I made a long sleeved 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. Actually it is to tight for a comfortable nightgown, so now it’s a dress.

A summer dress for me, made by me!

I love 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 turquoise cats / Pilchard too, you can knit the cat!
