The “So Last Year” Dress
This pattern bloomed all over the blogosphere in Fall 2012. And although I did buy the fabric specifically for this pattern a year ago, it took me all this time to get at it. But I don’t regret it. I was lucky enough to have reviews such as AlisonC‘s hinting to the fact that I was better off cutting the skirt on the straight grain, owing to my loosely weaved fabric. And thanks to lazylinchen‘s tutorial, I was able to add a lining fairly easily. I didn’t do any modification, except shortening the sleeves by approximately 15 cm to a 3/4 sleeve length. I treated the fabric as a striped fabric and matched all seams. I also added some bra holders. And that’s it!
The fabric is a wool blend that looks like a tweed. The color is violet with turquoise and pink threads running through.
I’m sorry the only pic of me wearing it was made by a 6-year-old with a 2-year-old trying to get some attention :) That’s the best I can achieve these days.
