Part 2. 3rd Ep.Sewing Bee

We are ready for a new challenge! 

The 3rd challenge for this episode was to transform 2-3 garments and make an evening dress for a 16-year old girl within 3 hours 30 minutes.

All the models are ready and waiting with our sewing-places.

My choices to transform were a lace dress and a kimono from my wardrobe, both bought in Japan. I feel the garments are a bit of my soul.. :)

I wanted to impresse the judges with a Japanese technics on the front part of the dress.
It's not an applicque as it says on the drawing. 
Normally you sew an applique on the garment and it's much easier, 
but I made a draped heart and sew it together with the front part.

I had to try the dress on my lovely model Malene to see how much I had to adjust.

I used the pink part of the kimono to make the draped heart. I also had to make some inserts at the shoulders and the side panels to make it fit better.

Malene is a Lovely model and the dress fits perfectly! ♥

Jenny said the dress was very sweet, and too sweet for a young girl,
but I disagree with her ....!
