Pillow Dress

Remember when I promised I will stop buying fabrics.
And remember that after that I got the urge to buy some blue viscose jersey and ended up ripping the store again...
This is what I had in mind back then:







It is again the easiest possible jersey dress made only from square pieces... Lazy me...
But the truth is it is done in 2 hours and comfy to wear. Summer is a good thing.
I got inspired by Spiderlily's skirt creation. Looking at hers I still like it more than mine. Mine looks somehow droopy and too much gather at the waist - maybe I will try to change it if I figure out what I did wrong. I mean if I cut it circular I wouldn't get the folded bubble edge, or?
I have a bit mixed feelings about this dress right now - It looks a bit younger and girlier than I am used to. In the same time it is the model I imagined.
Would you like to see a how to on this one?

P.S. On another note, maybe for all of you European readers, Germany is playing against Turkey on the Wednesday semifinal. This one is not ending well with no respect who wins... God stand us by!



The image is showing the street ( a normal street, not a pedestrian one...) after Germany got 3rd at the world tournament...
Another incredible EM fact - I never knew that the "Seven Nation Army" from the White Stripes is a popular soccer chant (they play it before most of the games now). I guess there is always something new to learn...

I would love a tutorial! I think the dress looks gorgeous, exactly what I need for summer. ;)
Just found your blog today, and I'm already a fan! Keep up the great work!

That looks like the perfect summer dress! The twisted sleeve is especially clever. I love knits, so easy to sew up fast, they're irresistable.

You know, when I was in Ibiza 2 years ago, groups of people (guys) would break out chanting the melody of that White Stripes song. I thought it was just the Italians, but I guess it's everybody's song!

Hi tanduama! Happy to meet you.
Yeah, Christina, I read that it was mostly connected to the Roma fans but now with this Euro I think it is completely established. I love the song and I find it remarkably good taste for soccer fans...
