Around a year ago, I sewed myself the Martini dress from La Maison Victor in a teal flower fabric from Lillestoff. The dress was such a success with my husband that I quickly sewed another in black an white. The Martini has a beautiful but distinctive neckline, I didn't want others to immediately see that I used the same pattern, so I made a normal round neckline. I have been planning to sew myself more dresses but didn't really come around to it until I won fabric from Lillestoff. Now my creative self sewing juices are flowing again.
Joyfits showed this fabric on her Facebook page it immediately went into
my digital cart and I figuratively raced to check out (usually I load
my cart and surf away from the page at least a few times before I buy)
because I knew this would be sold out quickly.
arrived, my middle daughter looked at it lovingly but I stayed strong
and turned the one meter into another adjusted Martini dress. I love it,
it is very bold and very colorful.The fit is perfect.
didn't pay attention to the fabrics print when cutting my pieces, now I
actually ended up with a not-ideal cutting at the back side. On the left, the same pattern repeats a few
centimeter from each other. On the pictures it might look that the
neckline is a bit wobbly. That is an illusion because of the print
there, I managed to position a horizontal horizon line at the top of my
chest. The fabric actually curves perfectly around my chest.
Next time I will lower the neckline and might choose a different neckline shape.
I love to hear what you think of my creations.
