I was trying to find the right words for this post for days now. I didn't! I'm not thrilled by this issue either. There is only one dress I like and it's the main reason I did buy the issue. I got to like that dress more because I found this ideal fabric for it. I hope I'll have time in the following to sew it. Lately my time has been so limited traveling and taking exams. I have not sewn for at least a month and a half and I have not found time to show you all whan I sew before things got so tight. I'm optimistic about the rest of the summer. I have two more summer dresses to sew. At least two, that's my main goal. I'm also going to make a navy style purse and couple of things for presents. If I meet these goal I'll be very happy and by the end of August I'll start planning for autumn and winter sewing.
So here are this issue's models that might interest you, starting with my favourite one.
I know it probably doesn't look like anything to special, but with the right fabric it can become! It's a vintage pattern, from the 50's, supposed to be a working out garment, accompanied with shorts, but they altered, omitted the shorted and lengthend the hem.
I really really like this one too, probably most because of the colour combination...
...but I know it wouldn't look good on me. The pattern is boxy and my curvy back would look weird, I would end up adding darts and it would be a totally different dress. I'm keeping the inspiration though.
Here's a few vintage looking dresses too. Don't get me wrong, I like the style, I adore anything vintage, but I probably wouldn't sew them. It's nice to have the patterns though.
If by any chance you are a tango dancer make the last one,
I'm sure you would look fabulous on the dance floor
This is a quite interesting dress
and there's a skirt with interesting darts that I'd like to try some time
I totally adore this top's colours and style, but it's nothing more than two scarves, which I would be luckier than Gastone Mc Duck if I could find them anywhere, so...
The plus size collection is much more interesting and quite unique...you lucky girls!
I loooooove this skirt, so summery, so simple yet so special!
See you around
