Aside from ironing, preparing the pattern is the most annoying part of sewing for me. That may be one reason why I like do make several versions of garments I like.
The light jersey with an abstract and colourful flowerprint sat in my stash for some time. I thought it might be a bit too much to do a whole dress with this print. The drapy front part of my caramel dress from Burda easy (autumn/ winter 2013) would be a nice opportunity to use it to set a colourful accent. So I planned to do this dress again. This time in black jersey with the flowerprint on the front and on one sleeve.
The only alteration I did, was to add a center seam to the back of the bodice. But just because I didn’t have enough fabric to do it on the fold. I used size 34 like last time. The jersey is very soft and stretchy and I could have graded it down a size. But at the moment I like the dress as loose as it is. I can easily hop on my bike with it or eat a 3 course meal (Both already tested 🙂 )
I take part in Me-Made-May again! This is what I wore the first days:
Day 2 was the first theme friday. It was “Cocktail Hour”. This picture was taken a few minutes before my personal cocktail hour at the rooftop pool outside the bar.
