I just know that when Matthieu sees this dress, he will say it looks like a wallpaper... And then diplomacy will win once again and he will add that we just have different taste...
I even had some fun imagining that conversation.
I know the print is a bit weird, but I somehow love it. The navy and red combination is great and the graphic flowers are nicely abstract. The fabric is a blend - 32% silk and 68% cotton. Very soft and it has a bit of a silk sheen.
The same pattern as the psycho wave blouse, just lengthen it a bit.
I did better work on the collar this time (I cut it after I've sewn the bodice. As most of the time expected with me I had to lengthen the collar pieces, since the neckline has gotten longer...).
I used flat felled seams again, topstitching with a red thread.
I can only recommend this pattern - it is easy and quick. I made the dress in like 3 days/3 hours sessions. It is still comfortable and not too tight, but in the same time give the impression of a well fitted garment.
The next photo is funny - I stand so stiff with an empty stance and the dress has a slight retro feel, the result being a bit messy Stepford wife...
I have a new strategy. When I am watching a movie I just use the time to trace and cut out patterns. Then I store them for better times...
