All In White..

♫ ♪ All In White

It’s very unusual for me to wear white.. This fabric was a find from the remnant box.. How could I ignore these cute retro bicycles?? Dyeing the fabric into any color was a big NO, because that way I would be left only with bicycle wheels on it..

For the dress I used the pattern #124 from Burda 05/2013.. I really liked the silhouette of the dress.. It was nice for a change to sew a V neckline and some part of the circle skirt.. And the fabric was perfect for this kind of a summer dress.. The fabric is very sheer rayon, but fully lined with lightweight white cotton.. After I’ve made the dress it occurred to me that it would look better if I used piping so all the parts of the bodice would be more noticeable.. I must remember that for all my future projects!!

    great dress I love this pattern and I keep it in stash where it’s waiting it’s turn… :) Although, yours it far the best I’ve seen made so far! You have nice figure, so it helps general impression of the dress :) but this doesn’t reduce your sewing skills ;) Great job, congrats, and thank you for confirming this pattern potential :)

      thank you for all the compliments :) there’s something in my sewing skills and nice figure, but most of it goes to cute fabric and good selection of photos :) hope you won’t have problems in sewing and your dress turns out great ;)

    Wow beautiful dress! The fit is perfect and looks great for sunny weather :) I’ve just bought this pattern to try my first ever sewing for me- before have sewn curtains and clothes for my little girl. Hope it turns out half as nice as your’s!~

      thank you :) I’m glad this dress inspired you :) there’s also a version with short sleeves and gathered skirt, but that kind of skirt totally changes the silhouette of the dress..

    It looks great on you! The fit is perfect! I love white, but only ever get about 3 hrs wear before I spill something on it!

      thank you :) you’re right about spilling something on white!! it’s magnet for it! during summer I usually end up with ice cream and chocolate stains on my clothes :)

    The pattern is perfect for your bodytype and I just love this fabric. You should wear white more often-it suits you!
