Island Time Dress

ILC_june_small-1

The slow pace of a tropical getaway heals the soul almost as much as the comfortable, flowy dress you will be wearing as you stroll along the beach. This versatile dress is made by starting at the high-waist and working down to the skirt, then crocheting in the opposite side of the foundation chain, working upwards for the bodice. This pattern could be easily converted into a two-piece outfit by simply working the bodice separately; it would look particularly lovely in two complementary colors.
