Flowering Week-end

Added Jul 5, 2013

Mykolayv, Ukraine






The fabric was bought for a blouse but then I thought that it’s so pity to cut those flowers and, having 1.10 cm of length, I was able to make the simplest dress that didn’t need any intricate pattern.

As I don’t like shapeless things but at the same time had to preserve the print uncut and avoid too much fitting, I had to find the balance in my outfit. I found the appropriate pattern where the side tucks from the waist line made the slightest expected fitting and modified the shoulder line (see on the picture). Besides I made a drop cut-out on the back.

Thus it was born:)

Material Notes

Made of reps with coupon print, it took me 1.40 cm x 1.10 cm. The armholes are processed with chiffon bias binding.

    I love the way you worked with that fabric, the back looks like you just left the meadow full of flowers. :-) The keyhole is an intriguing desing element.

      Thank you, I’m glad I’ve made a dress instead of a blouse: the fabric is too nice to spoil it with extra seams and cutting.

    You look so pretty and elegant in this dress my friend, this color is superb! Once again you found a fantastic fabric and the perfect pattern for it. I also like the way you changed the armholes and the drop cut-out on the back is a sweet detail. Your collection of dresses is totally gorgeous!

    Great use of a lovely fabric. I like the position of flowers and that have been left undisturbed. The dress suits you well.
