I’ve discovered cotton sateen. Stretch too!
It’s so divine and makes an every day dress a little more glamourous with a slight sheen, lovely and easy to sew too.
Plus you can have a dress that fits when you are skinny or wearing your ’winter coat".
Thanks to my ex also for my lovely camera for Christmas so now I don’t have to wait for him to come over every 6 weeks to take photos. Although they aren’t nearly as good as the ones he takes.
This is a vogue pattern I made about 7 years ago. I made a slight alteration in the pattern adding two darts at the top as it is quite baggy around the upper chest.
I’ve also added a little colar to give it some extra oomph.
My first version didn’t turn out brilliantly and luckily I had enough fabric to make a whole new one.
Except for a slight bit of wrinkling at the back I’m very very happy.
Navy blue stretch cotton sateen.
Armani Cotton for the colar
Sip cocktails by the fire in faux fur, patterned silks, and more luxurious fabrics.
