I love Desigual from Spain therefore I decided to try sewing a similar dress. I made a very easy drawing how I would like sew the dress, and I made the pattern so it should suit me, and in a way I did manage.. I love jersey dresses and they are so comfartable :)

Material Notes

Different jersey fabric.

    Bohemian Image! You look like an artist in this dress! You are a real expert on matching and combining fabrics! Is it a machine embroidery you did yourself?

      It’s fun to play with fabric and patterns ;) I have to admit I’m not good with handmade embroidery, so I’m lucky to have the sewing machine!

    i LOVE Desigual too, and your dress is so very Desigual-ish!! in fact, i think it has even better pattern combination than some original Desigual design. ;) very well done, bravo!

      i’ve just gone online and looked at the dresses from desigual, wow!!, your’s would fit in there really well. what i loved about their dress line was its all about the fabric. the dresses are just canvases for the gorgeous fabric. i loved them all x
