This post is long overdue in terms of how often I would like to post. Considering I put all my banksia makes in one post though I did not have much more to add this last week.
This weekend my parents visited me and it was a lot of fun to show off my self made clothes and wear them out to dinner as well. My newest addition to my wardrobe is this dress made from the pattern Style 3759 which Sew Busy Lizzy sent me here. I made it using some sort of suiting imitation in small dogtooth pattern.
It came together quickly enough after a big headache on how to make the flappy side panels. The instructions did not really help me as they just stated to sew it together but not how to. lol.
Talking it through with Twisted Yarns helped and when I looked at it again I had a light bulb moment.
The two buttons came from my mum.
It is a little bit loose even though my seam allowance at the zip was 1.5 inches on both sides and I was really generous with seam allowances throughout. But I actually love the loose but sort of structured look.
When I wear it though I feel a little bit like I jumped out of Sherlock Holmes era. lol
How was everyone’s weekend? I have some serious blog reading catch up to do this coming week!
