A promise is a debt
When I subscribed to Ottobre last December, I promised myself I’d make at least one pattern from each issue before the next one comes out. So when I saw the announcement that the next issue is coming out July 9, I owed it to myself to get to work. And this is the result:
I find it really hard to shoot a decent picture in the sticky weather. Has anyone ever experienced this. Anyway, the fabric is a linen remnant I bought at the Holland market a couple of weeks ago: 1.50 m for 1.50€!
The dress has a front yoke, pleated patch pockets, a back zipper and is embellished with flower-shaped buttons and velvet rikrak (yes, velvet rikrak! Wasn’t aware that such thing existed until I stumbled upon it on Ebay) . The pattern is straightforward and the instructions are okay, except the part where Ottobre tries to described understitching instead of just saying to understitch the facing.
