And it all started with a pattern...
In a few weeks we will be travelling to Singapore and Malaysia, where it will be nice and sunny, with real summer weather of around 30°C. To be fully prepared for this holiday I picked 7 new projects that need to be finished before the trip starts. How nice to travel with a new summer wardrobe ;) Lots of work still to be done, but I am happy to tell that number 3 has already been completed this weekend.
The pattern of the dress is from the March edition of Knipmode, the summer supplement. The fabric is a light cotton, brown/grey with white and pink flowers.
I am really happy with the end result. The dress has quite a lot of details, with a number of pleats in the front and back. Then there is the belt that is wrapped around the waist, and it has two pockets on the sides. I am really proud of myself with all the fine topstitching on the bodice. Never thought I could sew this neat and even. Also the first collar I made on a dress, and it turned out perfect.
Let the summer begin!!! I am ready for it :)
This is Kookiez. My blog on creative projects I am working on. I love to crochet, sew and knit. And in the summer I also paint occasionally.
