Butterflies and pink dreams…
For me, this has been the most romantic summer dress of 2012. It’s so light, so soft, so chic!
The fabric is a light pink chiffon with gorgeous print of butterflies and flowers on it. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it at the fabric store and finished the dress in a day!
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
What’s on my sewing table…
So here’s my upcoming project. Another elegant summer dress pattern from 1950s. This time it’s Vogue’s vintage pattern no. 2961.
It’s a classic 1950s fashion dress with a tight bodice and a circle skirt. The original pattern was first published in 1953.
What do you think would be the best print for this pattern?… You’re right! It’s definitely a bunch of flamingos!
I always adore black and white fabrics and I’m crazy about such awesome prints. Added to that the good quality of cotton, this is the must sew fabric for me. So I decided to use this adorable fabric with this adorable vintage pattern.
It does look promising on my dummy. When I figure out the buttonhole detail in front of the dress, I can quickly finish it I guess.
It is a miracle to even move one finger in this heat… I hope I would not only have used their images, but also be able to live like them and spend my days sitting in water…
It’s too darn hottttt!!!!…..
Defying the summer laziness…
I’ve been sewing like crazy since the start of my holiday but was too lazy to take photos of my projects. I then realize that it’s been only 2 posts this month so I rushed into taking photos at least for my final project.
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!

Tactics for “Pepluming” Dresses :)
Hello Everyone! I mentioned you about a contest managed by Philips Smart Irons together with BurdaStyle Magazine in Turkey, in my previous post “To Peplum or Not to Peplum?”. Having this in mind, and the unstoppable urge for sewing a peplum dress, left me with no choice for trying out my first peplums!
