In the past, I made myself a few dresses and I love wearing all of them, but I can still use a few more. The pattern for this dress is from the most recent Knip (September 2015). I adjusted the fabric positioning because I was inspired by the Jaanu (that I still have to sew).
This was the first dress I made from the Knip and I am not that enthusiastic the sizing as I am about the Ottobre and La Maison victor. I really carefully followed the size table (so blending between sizes it is) but the whole thing was too big. I almost had to take the entire dress apart but I fixed it. For example on the back I actually removed about 5 centimeters of fabric.
The fabric is from Joyfits, a while ago she had a huge sale and I thought it was a great excuse to buy a few meters (not that I need an excuse normally, but it still made me very happy). The apple fabric is from Hilco, the fabric is sturdy with high recovery and stretch, ideal fabric for clothing. The other (upper) fabric I also bought at Joyfits, but I bought is almost two years ago. The one meter I bought from the Hilco was not enough for the entire dress, but I think this gives a nice combination.
During the fitting in which I discovered the abundance of fabric around my body, I also saw that the length wasn't that long, so I used a bias to keep all the length I had. I chose for 3/4 sleeves, like I mentioned in a previous post, I feel I can wear that length the entire year round.
I love to hear what you think of my creations. Feel free to leave a comment in the language you prefer (although Google translate might have to assist me if you choose something different than English, German, Dutch or Hungarian).
