Flamingo Dress is Completed!
I finished my dress! Despite the killing heat, I managed to make a awesome dress out of awesome fabric with flamingo prints :)
The real awesomeness of this dress is that it was quite easy to sew and looks perfect when finished. Although it was a moderately easy pattern, the dress looks really elegant when finished. I mean, as elegant as any dress covered up with flamingos would look :P
The “flip-flop” halter dress finished!
I’m finally on holiday and want to celebrate it with a fun, comfy and chic dress for the summer. Sewing is seriously getting more easier than shopping for me… Think about it: you first go on window shopping, make a list of the items you loved, then limit your choices with your budget, find a dress that you’d adore - which would also fit exactly your size and body shape… blablablaaa… Whereas this gorgeous dress took me a day to finish and cost around 5 EUROS!
Upcoming Project: 1950’s halter dress!
It’s been quite some time since I last wrote and I feel very bad about it :( But my hectic work program has just finished and I feel like a school kid just going out to summer break!
Of course my heavy workload did not stop me from daydreaming about my next sewing project. This month’s BurdaStyle mag offers so much for my well deserved holiday plans. If you enjoy 1950’s dresses, you mustn’t miss this one. This pattern is also sold through their website where you can visit from this link.
So here’s my new summer dress:
This pattern is just a copy of the one published in BurdaStyle May 1950 issue. Isn’t it great? :)
The dress has a halter neckline and a circle skirt. Hmm, I may need to edit the skirt a little bit.
I’m just ready to cut the pattern and start sewing. The fabric I intend to use for this project is a lightweight cotton with very graceful patterns on it!
I’ll soon let you know about the results of this project on Sewing Your Style :) I hope it’ll turn out as great as I imagine.
