This project is in honor of a turtle friend that I made last weekend (more details on my blog).
I know that the color and geometric pattern on the dress is not an exact match to the turtle’s shell, but I associate the project with that turtle. Probably because of the yellow markings and the fact that a dress is sort of like a shell.
I did make a few changes to the pattern. I altered the neckline, added a bit of width to the hips, and shortened the hemline.
If you are interested in more information or pictures (plus close-up photos of a cute turtle), please see this post. Thanks for looking!
