Sew & Stuff part II



As promised, here is the second installment of my weekend sewing projects. I really love the sleeves on this, coupled with the fact that it was super easy to make.

I've never learnt to pattern make, just dress make so I find that I have enough knowledge to alter them( I popped the sleeves from this dress onto the lilac dress from the previous post, and made them bracelet length) but I need to work from a pattern to actually make something.

I've thought about doing a pattern making course, I figure then I can pretty much make what I want but I'm happy ambling along with my Janome for the time being.

Dress: Lady Melbourne
Trench: Zara
Boots: Primark
Scarf: A gift
Bag: Local op-shop

p.s- I made some new cushions as well, spot them if you can on the couch.

And you say I'm talented! Look at you! I started at that New Look boat neck, darted dress pattern for ages and thought, nahhhh. But you really brought it to life for me...

Damn I regret not buying it now!

What for a perfect coloured photstream and lovely dress you made.
I also once did a course on pattern making of a basic skirt and pant according to your own figure.It was really more a technically than a creative work.

Very impressive stuff... sleeves like that are hard to get right...

Darrah said...

I can't believe you made this!! I would definitely purchase something like this. Your skill to match pattern and print is a gift.

I love the fabric. Where did you get it from, if you don't mind me asking.

I've been catching up on your blog and had forgotten that you also made some of these fantastic pieces. I'd love to know more about your sewing and who taught you dressmaking.

Love this dress! Did you also make the trench?
