My new dress



Well, here is the dress I made last week.
Unfortunately I don't have many pictures to share as I was hoping I would. My dear family (husband and daughter) made about twenty pictures out of which I was able to use (n)one, mhh, sorry family. (Should have brought the tripod!)



This dress was inspired by all those Japanese dresses I drool at, but I didn't use any existing pattern for it. Instead I drafted the pattern myself. I love how it turned out especially the ruffled collar and the lacey belt.

Wow! I am impressed! You can make such a beautiful dress without any pattern? wow!
It really is pretty!

Oh Nat, you are so kind! Thank you!
You should have seen the mistakes I had made in the past -even manage to make some now-while trying to sew with no patterns!! It took me years of practice, nerves shattering, seams reaping, frustration and a tear here and there to come to this stage ;)
(And I am still learning...)

It's absolutely stunning Maya. The wait for the reveal was worth it.

Lovely, lovely. Very feminine. I am also impressed at your no-pattern sewing skills.

I love that color too. Is it blue, or gray-blue?

Little Treasures said...

Thank you Clara for the encouragement!
It is blue(ish) but there is white thread interwoven with the blue one and thus it gives the impression of being bluish-grayish.

Oh, and now you know why I always use Bertha to photography my clothes.
