Three-trick dress and my first Vogue pattern
Yet another Ottobre pattern. I’m thinking about getting a subscription. The next issue is coming out July 10 and I can’t wait already, although I know it won’t be available here in Germany until at least a week later). Here’s another fast dress from the 03/2009 issue. It’s called the three-trick dress because it can be worn either sleevesless or with one or two sets of sleeves. Again, I combined a flower and a checked fabric. I’ve been doing it a lot lately. Here are the pictures:
It’s the first time I’m somewhat disappointed by an Ottobre pattern (but only somewhat). I think the other set of sleeves will look much better but I didn’t have enouch yellow fabric left to make them. O well, I guess I have to go back to the fabric store… 😉
Another project I decided to tackle is the jacket of Vogue 1099 in a vibrant red linen I got at the Holland market and a polyester lining. I know it’s almost pervert to be combining linen with polyester but these fabrics just matched to well. I didn’t have time to shoot pictures but you’ll see in time. I’m beginning with the lining and facing in order to be able to correct the fit before I cut my fashion fabric. I read this on another sewing blog but I can’t recall which one. I’ll be updating on the progress of this project.
