In spite of the absolute lack of photographic evidence, I actually managed to wear me-made clothing every day in May. This was in no small part due to the sweatshop nature of my dressmaking habit. Thanks to my favourite Croydon-based, rainbow geese-obsessed, dirty-minded, photo-taking quilting friend, Kelly, and yesterday’s Nintendo Guild meet-up I can now show you what I’ve been sewing.
First up, the Red Velvet dress by Cake patterns. Love the 50s vibe. So wearable in jersey. Goes nicely with buttercups.
Next, the Lady Skater, in some unnamed viscose jersey that I picked up at a quilt show. I *love* this dress. It’s so comfortable, and skims nicely over my curvy bits.
And jumping on the bandwagon (and channelling my inner Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music, apparently), the Moneta. I must make more of these, immediately.
Next up, complete with photobomb from Baxter, the giant horse-dog, a Flora (with massive FBA). I am *very* proud of this one. I did actual alterations on a proper muslin and everything. Go me!
And finally, an Emery dress, with a pleated (rather than gathered) skirt. What a great pattern – there will definitely be more of these in my future.
So there you have it. All my new clothes at once so you can skip the ridiculous photos in one go. You’re welcome!
