The Stripey Bandit

There's a new bandit in town. You'll know her by her clever disguise - she can bounce the sun's glare directly into your eyes from her mask, rendering you blind and enabling her a quick get away.

You may also know her by her dodgy dance moves. The Stripey Bandit sure does like to rock on!

Project Details

Pattern: Dress #12 from Ottobre Design Magazine 2/2005
Fabric: 1m of stripey cotton print, which wasn't quite enough - boy did I do some head scratching trying to fit all the pattern pieces in! Still, yet enough stash buster, so I'm pleased.
Notions: elastic for sleeves and neckline

I adore this dress - I'm so happy with how the stripes look going both ways. It's a winner!


  1. What a cute bandit you have in your midst, even dancing in a beautiful stripey dress!

  2. hehehe laughing at the 'dodgy dance moves' mention.

    lovely job with the dress!

  3. That bandit must be recruiting sidekicks becuase we have dodgy dance moves here today too...

    Her dress is lovely - well done on fabric statsh busting...(will you be replacing that used metre with another?)

  4. Very cute. I want one for myself!

  5. That's so cool!

  6. Cute dress, but the stripey bandit is the show stealer!
