Exact cuffs, inlaid pleats along the shoulder and a moderate V-neckline ... the cut of this dress with the bias skirt panel looks good on paper, though the real power of the style is in the wonderfully printed crêpe in electric blue and black.
One style, two ways to wear it. Underneath the cropped shirt with the playful bow in back, is the splash of a longer top sewn in a slightly lighter shade – and one that can naturally also be worn on warmer days as a solo style. Sew a festive version by using a fine silk jersey.
A wardrobe without the shirt dress is just not complete. This style is a persuasive choice with its tying bands, gathered shoulders and loose sleeves that hang longer in back than front and are enclosed at the hem. You‘ll find an illustrated sewing course for this style in the sewing supplement.
This narrow fit skirt with the intermingled panels of black and royal blue is beautiful, like a modern painting. For a single colour version, you could also use a matt and shiny effect with a satin that can be cut with alternating right and wrong sides.
The slightly tailored dress emphasizes feminine curves and is also reminiscent of the 1940s with its ruffled shoulders. When the evening approaches, you can upgrade it with high heels and gold jewelry to the party dress you need.
Satin can also have a cool vibe – as you can see for yourself. We cut it with the matte side as the main look, and the sophisticated shimmer to punctuate as the accent at the rolled sleeves. Exposed zippers in front, at the pockets and at the side hems are essential elements for the on-trend fashion statement.
Add a bit of swing to your blouse style with this look. Featuring a bateau neckline and cropped sleeves, it is wonderfully paired with bold and bright skirts and some white ankle boots – one of THE shoe trends of the moment.
The ladylike look of a skirt and the practical sense of shorts. These shorts are sewn with a royal blue crêpe and feature pleats that open toward the waist and the hem for sensational volume.
The skirt, set slightly lower on the waist, and the wide multi-stitched panel highlight ladylike curves. The half-length sleeves cleverly conceal the upper arms and make the dress style the perfect business dress.
Wide lapels, extra-large buttons and sleeve bars are just a few reasons this short jacket sewn in a deep blue canvas is sure to draw the second glance. A deep inverted box pleat in back gives it extra width.
