London, United K...
A friend left the office a few month ago, and my sewing “teacher” and I decided to use the opportunity to make a project together…
the pattern was the 7979 Jonny on, but unfortunately another friend who does not sew chose the fabrics, which were so thin that ripped as we tried to sew them… for months we pretended that the dress was not there, but finally decided to face it back in our own terms. so we changed materials and modified some of the details on the pattern… I will post my mark ups soon..
The top is white linen
The skirt is a wrinkled paper looking like cotton I bought in an African fabrics shop.
For the neck and cuffs we chose a contrasting material from my grandma´s “tresure box”…
the buttons are black cristal… a bit dear but look gorgeous :-)
To all those who shared the pain :-)
Particularly Rachael and Valerie for pinning, ironing and modelling for us
