Description

I didn’t had a lot of time to sew in the past year or so. I did make some things, so today I decided to take pictures and post my latest work.

I needed a simpel black casual dress so I traced a beachdress that I allready had and use the pattern to make this dress. I forgot to think about that I wanted a sleeve so I allready cut the fabric and then realized that the shoulders were too narrow for sleeves. I added some stretch lace that I had and then attached the sleeve. I like how it turned out but it is a bit too short for me and the fabric is getting less beautiful after a year wearing. So i’m going to make a new basic dress out of a more luxurious fabric and also make it a bit longer.
