Guess what? More dresses!

So I solved the problem with the infamous birdy dress and to celebrate the fact that I'm literally drowning in dresses I made another one! It's a wrap dress from the same ol' Burda bodice and the fabric is a light polycotton with nice yellow tones. It's really grown on me since said fabric had been lying next to the shop's door for years without my looking at it until I dreamt of it a few weeks ago and went straight to buy it on the next day^^. I'm not completely sold on the design, I thought that since the bodice part is quite fitted with its slimming darts I would avoid the your-body's-quite-the-block-isn't-it effect but the fabric does bunch a little around my -ahem- waist :( On the bright side it has a totally cute 60's vibe and it's really pleasant to wear since it's so light.




The other dress I wanted to show you is a wax variation of my mum's favourite pattern: I only added a sweetheart detail on the front and a contrasting fabric belt. I think she was quite pleased and I must say I'm quite proud of the result :)




Have a nice week, see you!

  3. Well done! I recently got some wax print fabric from Tanzania (not that I was in Tanzania)to whip up into a dress. I bet your mum is ecstatic that you're sewing for her! Oh, an Easter visit to my mother's unearthed some of her lost trim too - being the excellent daughter I am, I took it off her hands so that it's not cluttering her linen cupboard .... the sacrifices I make!
