20160505_175312[1]A lot of what I make is made from limited resources, fabrics bought in thrift stores or only in small quantities  so they don’t get too expensive. This means being as efficient as possible with what I have. But the more i do this I also enjoy matching prints and paying attention to details .

I bought these fabrics today, they were sold in pieces of roughly 150 cm each,and I intend to make as much as I possibly can out of the prints. I’ll keep you posted.

Just in time

ImageAnd it’s done, and there’s still summer left to use it!

The fabric is a wax print that my sister bought for me in Tanzania, it’s the same on both sides, so I carefully fitted the pattern to be different in the back, very pleased with that back!

Since I wanted the pretty flowers to show, I wanted a dress with a minimum of seams. I choose my old companion Stil 5357, but made it longer and also made the skirt wider. I usually wear my dresses over the knee, so just below is a different feeling, but I like it, makes me feel like a grown up!ImageImage

Summer’s back

So obviously I’ll need another dressImage

and boy, do I appreciate my copying the sewing pattern with seam allowance included!

Don't need to be cool to be kind.
