Description

This dress pattern was a love from the first sightI liked it exactly as shown in the magazine so I was lucky to have in my stash the same color and material, red wool flannel. The result didn’t disappoint me at all – the dress is very flattering and although it is empire waisted it hasn’t a maternity look. My best part of the dress is the pockets – i can’t take my hands out of them while wearing this dress. And of course the sleeves are simply adorable!

    The result is just perfect! Very soft silhoette and ideal fitting. The colour adds some passionate note but the hue is pretty soft as well… You look lovely and it’s clear you like your outfit a lot:-)

      Thank you very much my sweet rita, your comments are very kind. Although I’ve been sewing for more than 20 years it was my first time to make this kind of pockets!

      Your pockets turned out amazing, especially since it was the first time!!!! I have only made those pockets a few times, and they are not my list of fun things to make……

    Λοιπόν, έχεις ράψει ενα φόρεμα που ειναι τέλειο πάνω σου, μ’αρεσει πολυ το ντεκολτέ και η πλάτη, για τις τσέπες ειναι αυτονόητο, τώρα πια αν κάποιο πατρόν δεν εχει τις προσθέτω μόνη μου. Το έχω αυτό το τεύχος και μου άρεσε το φόρεμα αυτό απο την αρχή, είχα όμως τις αμφιβολίες μου για την ραφή στους ώμους που ειναι τόσο λεπτή, στέκονται η πέφτουν συνέχεια;

      Σ’ ευχαριστω πολυ για τα καλα σου σχολια! Το φορεμα δεν πεφτει απο τους ωμους αλλα ανοιγει και φαινονται οι ραντες του σουτιεν. Σκεφτομαι να βαλω ρελακι με σουστες για να πιανεται απο τις ραντες. Στις φωτογραφιες φοραω στραπλες οποτε δεν υπηρχε προβλημα.

    This dress is beautiful. I haven’t noticed that in the magazine but on you it is stunning and I want to sew it! Great dress and I can see why you don’t want to take the hands out of the pockets and take the dress off! It looks like this is going to be one of your favorite dresses!
