Hello! Once again I've sewed a lot this week but not for me :( Actually it's a good thing because I'm making my first two orders ever: a bridesmaid dress for Sophie and a cocktail dress for my friend Laurence, so far the dresses have been going quite well so I keep my fingers crossed!
I still managed to finish a handbag I had started eons ago and I also sewed a super quick, fun striped tote bag (2 hours max to draft, trace and sew, complete with lining!).

I didn't take a picture of the inside of this one because it's lined with plain white fabric.

Finally I wanted to show you The Dress That Won't Be:

It's my second attempt at a Hollywood pattern which I mentioned a few weeks ago. The first version -in polyester- was a catastrophy so I made careful alterations, chose a lighter fabric and eventully understood that the design is just not flattering on me. Plus when I sewed a side of the skirt the fabric got too stretched and now this part is wrinkled and points towards the front :( I'll put the patten in my Etsy shop if you're interested.

  1. Those bags are adorable! I am sorry to hear about your dress issues. :(

  2. Hi Cecili, I adore your fabric choices!! Those bags are really pretty. It has a spice of "good old days".
    The dress is also look really cute though. Are these fabrics from there?

  3. Ophelia, thank you for your nice comments! I bought the striped and pink fabrics where I live (Reunion Island) but the green one with tiny sailors is Lecien from Japan :)

  4. aawwwww there is nothing sadder (and more frustrating) than dresses that just don't work out no matter how hard you try. I'm sorry for you!!

    Your bags look terrific and I hope your orders go well! (Making things for other people stresses me out ridiculously, I avoid it at all times!)

  5. Lol Lily I agree, I'm terrified with these orders and if they weren't gooooood friends of mine I would have said no as well! And thanks for commenting on my bags :)
