I feel like my blogging has been a little strained these holidays. I’ve been sewing like a mad woman, but struggling to get motivated to put on make up and photograph my finished items. I managed to photograph a few items today, so hopefully some more activity on the blog front will happen.
I purchased this fabric last year with the intention to make a more playful and vibrant tank. It’s a delightfully smooth sateen by Kokka, that I purchased from Miss Matatabi. You can see a different colourway here.
Now I have it and I’m happy.
This is my own pattern which I have made numerous times before. There isn’t much more to say about it, but I like it. I think I may retire this pattern for a while now. There are only so many tanks that you need in your wardrobe.
Now, rather than stash the remnant back into my over stuffed basket of scraps, I made them into a dress for Adele.
She was a little disappointed with this dress initially – not pink enough – but now has worn it a few times, so I guess it’s OK.
I used a vintage drop waist dress pattern which I have used before here, but it appears she is a little too tall for the size 4 pattern and it isn’t much of a drop waist.
Perhaps we’ll both wear these together on our trip to Mr Maker at the Opera House tomorrow?
