#memademay2019 day 24.
heading out of town today but packing all the memades! wearing this #highlandswrapdress to meet some sweet sewing friends tonight! i made this dress with some bright lime green fabric i found for pennies at an estate sale. i overdyed it with blue @ritdye and it became this amazing muted deep blue with undertones of green. it’s a heavier weight fabric so the weather has to be just right to wear it or i get really hot. guess that’s one way i can be grateful for today’s rainy cooler forecast!
happiest of friday’s, sewing loves!
Hello kitty!! i am thrilled to share my first make as part of the @sewoveritlondon pattern insiders team!! the lovely soi crew gifted me the pattern to make ahead of their release this week, and as soon as i saw it i knew i had to make it up in this gorgeous ex zara cotton lawn, which i bought from them last year.
the pattern features two bodices (one sleeveless princess seam and one block bodice with sleeves), two collar options and two skirt options - you can make a total of 10 different garments from 1 pattern!
i choose to make bodice 1 with princess seams, notched collar and a gathered skirt. i also fully lined both bodice and skirt as the fabric was a bit sheer. this has given the skirt some extra volume. while i am not usually a fan of extra bulk on my hips, i actually like it with this pattern!! this is a size 12 and the only adjustment i made was to take it in under the arms slightly to stop gaping. next time i might also do a swayback.
i absolutely love this dress and i can’t wait to wear this beauty all summer long!! #soikittydress#sewoverit#kittydress#soipatterninsiders#sewing#sewcialists#makeitsewcial#isew#instasew#sewistsofinstagram#ootd#diyootd#psimadethis#handmadewardrobe#memademay#memadeeveryday#imakefashion#imakemyclothes#sewsewsew
