Description

For this I used a stretch suede fabric I had in my stash for years. I loved this color but wasn’t sure if it would look good on me, so I used it as a test material for this pattern. I added some topstiching with brown and orange thread so it matches my necklace. Our fellow sewist kisses told me that suede is very trendy this year, so I plan to wear this a lot!!

    This is a great dress liliv. I also looked at that pattern but as it is for little women, I didn’t do it till now. You’re pretty in that dress.

    Amazing dress on you, looks wonderful! Great hand stitching. (I would have taken a year to do that) Yes suede is in, and are brown tones, so you are hot on the fashion trend !!! And I like the colour on you, great with your hair. Even though you are in the city, still neat pictures to see different countries.

      I just love to read your comments! Are brown tones on trend? I didn’t know it. This is really good news as I love brown.

    This looks lovely liliv. I have looked at this pattern often. I think your version with long sleeves is so much better. Your top stitching is a good detail too. Well done.

    I like this dress on you. And definitely add my voice to all those who praised the top stitching :) I actually tried on a cropped top in a shop about a week ago with almost the same crossing and loved it (didn’t buy it, I can make it myself :) ), so this pattern is a winner for me

    liliv, this is absolutely wonderful! Have used this pattern and liked it very much. Did mine in a stretch cotton which looked nice but is a nightmare for ironing. I would never have thought of using suede. it looks great, especially with all those fantastic details. Great job, I love it!!!! And I like the colour on you :-))

    yes this pattern is definitely a winner! thanks for reminding me of it again :-))

    I like this dress very much and am going to make since bought the issue… Your ideas to use summer patterns to make awesome mid-seasons dresses are great. I like the fitting, the choice of the fabric, top stitching (looks like handwork?) and your nice emotions on the pictures:-) Lady look indeed! P.S. The jewellry matches well.

      I had this in my wish list for a long time too! Now that I have made it I don’t regret it at all – it’s a great pattern that gives a very ladylike and flattering result. And yes, the top stiching is made by hand – with vintage thread bought 40-50 years ago by my mother! Thank you very much for your always encouraging and motivating comments!
