Hi guys and happy monday!! It’s been a hot minute on here and I could mention some reasons why I’ve been away but life happens, I seriously do apologize. Hope you had a great start in the new year. Praying 2018 has great things and opportunities.
Onto today’s piece. I purchased this fabric sometime back and decided to make this duster using Butterick pattern. What I love about this pattern is, its an easy and quick sew. I added darts but went for a loose fitting so I can layer when its chilly. Took quite a lot of pictures but it was windy and I wasn’t pleased with how most of them turned out.
Hi guys! Hope you had a good start in the week. I have been nursing a cold the past few days, I feel much better thank God. In this post I am reviewing this vogue pattern . When I saw the pattern, I fell in love with the neck as it has this victorian vibes. A light weight fabric was recommended but of course I opted for ankara just because I couldn’t help myself. As I was assembling the pieces together I realized that the fabric was quite see through so I added a lining to the body. The belt gives it a more fitted look. As autumn is here, I will be including this more in my wardrobe.
Pattern description: Loosing fitting dress
Pattern sizing: 6-14, 16-22
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, its an easy sew.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I fell in love the neck, it has this victorian vibe to it and the patterns pieces are minimal because some times it can get overwhelming.
Fabric used: Ankara cotton woven
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made? I added a lining to the body as this ankara were suprisingly a bit see through and also shorten the hem.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes
Hi guys and happy monday! I made this beautiful bold ankara print when I attended a freehand cutting workshop. Having learned making dresses using a patterns, I wanted to explore the traditional way using measurements. To be honest it was a little tricky at first but with time I get more confident, haha. Freehand cutting gives me the boldness to custom make outfits.
I’m so in love with this dress, can’t get over it. The ankara fabric is light and yet of good quality. I paired it with these color block sandles. Thanks for taking your time to check out my blog. Hope you come back soon for another post.
