Halter Style Dress

Image
What is nicer than a Halter Style Dress for summer ๐ŸŒธ The fabric feels like silk, so soft even though it is polyester blend. I bought the fabric for the  Sewing Bee Challenge 2017  and my plan was to use it for the bathrobe. Since I found a fabric that I like even more, this has been in my stash for a while.. I thought it would be nice for this pattern and with wiener-pleats it has to be very soft draped. It was a bit challenging to make lining for the upper part, but with some hand-stitching it went well. I didn't line the skirt, I like the flow when I'm moving and it feels very nice to the skin :)     Burdastyle pattern #101 05/2019

Flowers = Summer! ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒผ Jersey is comfy to were and love sewing with jersey! This is a pattern I wanted to try, and I found the floral jersey in my stash. Turquoise together with red is a great combination. The dress has loops and buttons in front, but it's more for decoration since I easily can take the dress over the head without opening. I have used stones as buttons which I think is very nice :) Burdastyle pattern #114 01/2019 Thanks BurdaStyle for featuring My Dress! ๐Ÿ’™

Silk Blouse

Silk fabric is delicious to wear, but can be a challenge to sew.. Therefore I chose to use an easy pattern from BurdaStyle. I have used "french seams" for the shoulders, sides and sleeves as shown on the photo below. The fabric is rather special with the circles and different colors. I was lucky to find it on our fabric-tour with my sewing friends in Saint Petersburg.  I have hand-stitched the inner-cuffs for the sleeves and also for the hem since the fabric is so delicate ๐Ÿ’š  Burdastyle pattern #103 03/2019

Freak Out!

Sometimes it's just FUN to Freak Out!  ๐Ÿ˜†   This is a crazy print fabric I found in Copenhagen. The skirt is from an earlier project. The vest is rather new and it can be turned in-side-out. The pattern is from Burda issue 04/2014. My good college Lisa is a great model for this outfit! She also join me when we are on"tour" doing catwalk with refashion in the local community๐Ÿ˜‰                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Burdastyle pattern #125 04/2014

Shiny Taft fabric is great for an evening dress! It's "crunchy" and you can here it when you're walking, and it makes you feel special!๐Ÿงก The dress has pleats in front, cap-sleeves, and bubble hem.  BurdaStyle issue 08/2007

T-shirt with Tie

Image
This is an easy T-shirt to make for summer ๐ŸŒž The feather in the fabric looks like stripes and I wanted to use the "stripes" lengthwise for the tie, but since I didn't have that much fabric I had to sew together several pieces, but luckily I managed to have enough! I have used a very soft viscose jersey and it's comfy to wear. I made a double layer for the binding around the neck.  Burdastyle pattern #112 04/2019
