Chanel meets Sonja

Second attempt on the “sonja” pattern. I’m very pleased with it. LOving the pattern, it just sits perfectly on me.
Drafted and oversized waist belt, peplum stylish. I will upload the instructions for that later :)

There’s really no need for adjusting if you take your time with the pattern…just sayin’ as I have read many complaints but I had NON!

      I was actually thinking of contacting you as I wanted to decorate the bust with little petals or beads and you are an expert on those things..I made a lot of petals but I decided not use them. I might go for beads and diamonds at a later stage but right now I’m happy with it a it is :) thank you for your kind comment! x

      You’re so nice for thinking of me :) Happy to help anytime!
      I think it looks great, like you wrote in the title-it has a Chanel vibe, but in your own way.
      I’m curious if you’ll make any embellishments with beads or petals, I’ll watch it! xxx

    I like it very much! Your fabric choise and the belt you added gave a totally different look to this pattern. Nice work.
