I haven’t blogged in almost three weeks – but not because I haven’t been sewing. In fact, I’ve been sewing so much that I haven’t found the time to blog about it 🙂
It’s just that I realised – quite late – that Norah urgently needed a Autumn/Winter wardrobe. I’ve made 4 and a half dresses and skirts so far, which I’ll be showing in the coming days. All really simple things in lovely Autumny colors.
Today: dress #1: a simple basic body dress Tinny in a brilliant fabric: Paint by Number Deer in Sky from Erin Michael’s Lush Uptown line (Moda), bought here.
I used my Tinny
pattern, but made a few adaptations. Instead of a collar sewn between the neck line and facing, I drew a semi-collar which I finished off with bias binding – inspired by this one
by the brilliant Trine
. The hem of the skirt is finished with bias binding too.
Getting nice pictures is difficult these days, with Norah going to school full days without a nap at noon. She’s exhausted when she comes home, and asking her for a photoshoot is just not something I want to do. So you’ll have to make do with the crappy pic below to get an idea of what the dress looks like when worn.
