I've been sewing up a storm over the last week, and now have a few more handmade pieces to add to my wardrobe.
There's just that little matter of cleaning the wardrobe out of all of the clothes that I no longer need or wear...
This is a bit of a mash up of patterns again.
The bodice is the top half of the Vintage Simplicity 5007 again, with the neckline lowered, and the skirt is the Lisette Passport Dress again.
This time when I cut the skirt pieces, I added three extra inches in width at either side of the CF and CB, so that I could make the three pleats on either side at the front and back.
I used a small binding on the armholes, a large binding on the neckline and just gave it a minimal hem.
I sewed it up and then realised that I'd forgotten the in-seam pockets. Thank goodness I hadn't overlocked yet!
I even managed to set them in at the correct height this time *win*
I desperately tried to take a selfie to show me actually wearing it, but it was 42 degrees celsius and I ended up with a whole lot of blurry photos / me with my eyes closed / head chopped off etc... so this is the best of a bad lot.
This is seriously the most comfy dress ever. I LOVE IT!
