Welcome to my new favourite summer dress! The mix of this gorgeous ‘Jungle Roar’ fabric Zingara Organic Fabrics gifted me and the fun, summery pattern is a match made in heaven!
I love this fabric – the dress turned out pretty great too!
This is the Joni dress from Tilly and the Buttons’ book ‘Stretch’ in a cotton jersey.
I loved the design of this pattern the second I saw it. Big floaty sleeves, a cinched-in waist, boat neck – what’s not to love?
Sometimes, a pattern that should take a few hours ends up taking days because of all the changes required to make it work. Luckily, it’s usually worth it – and that was certainly the case for the In The Folds x Peppermint Magazine peplum top.
A new month, a new pattern test!
This time it was the newest pattern from Designer Stitch, the Dylan Pants. They’re a fitted style of pants with some interesting features that can be made up in a variety of stretch wovens.
This pattern was released just as seemingly every fast-fashion outlet was bringing out these crossover mini skirts – so perfect timing for me to make my own.
This was my first Adrienne Blouse from Friday Pattern Company and all I can say is that it was love at first sight. I seriously love this top and the opportunities the enormous sleeves provide for hiding snacks and contraband in.
I feel like the Mira Dress is the most popular pattern from Fibre Mood. I’ve seen so many fantastic versions of this dress that I needed to make my own. I’m not a huge fan of loose dresses but I hoped that this viscose from Milliblus would have enough drape to fall nicely.
This is the ideal summer dress. It is loose and flowy without being so loose and flowy that I could fit a 110-inch flat-screen TV under there; it has fun features AND it covers bra straps – ideal I tell you!
Time for a 60s miniskirt! This is actually my toile/muslin – I wanted to test the pattern before cutting into my good fabric. I think it’s wearable though, perfectly imperfect 😀
