Day 4 - Sewing

I have done some sewing lately - all from the same pattern. This one is the Sydney Designer Dress from Style Arc.

It is a super comfy cocoon dress. The first one I made was the blue cotton one on the left. I followed the pattern, but the dress is too long and the pockets too low (I should have listened to all the reviews). So the second one (the red flowery rayon one on the right) I made the necessary adjustments.

The fabric for both these dresses come from the fundraising sale at the Costume Museum of Canada (the pattern cost more than all the fabric).

The dresses were lovely to make and went together so well - a great pattern.

 I had a metre of fabric left over from the red dress, so I made a top using the yoke/sleeve pattern pieces, and just lengthen it into a top. I put an elastic in the bottom hem and added a tie just for fun.

All the best!♥︎
