Here’s a couple of dresses that I have made recently:
First off, the Tiramisu Dress from Cake Patterns. Very easy to make! I had already made this out of some cheap Ponte Roma, so I was confident in the fit, and decided to use this rather more expensive printed jersey. It’s got a lovely vintage feel, and is super comfortable to wear. I was really lucky to get the mustard yellow cardigan to go with it! And the shoes? I have had them for years! It just needs a little attention to the hem, see it’s a bit droopy at the back!
Here’s Tilly’s Coco top made into a dress. Again it’s printed jersey, an animal print this time. I have worn this dress several times already – it looks good with boots, and different colour cardigans. I always thought I didn’t like boat necks, but this one I love! I must make some tops with this pattern, and I am sure this won’t be the last Coco dress I make. I love the string of beads that Burnice made for me and I like to wear them with this dress.
Nicholas took these photos, and he loves to do ‘arty-farty’ – here’s a couple of examples
