For this first Indie Pattern challenge (and my first Monthly Stich post!) I whipped up this Lekala Pattern. While the technical aspect of the directions gave me a little bit of trouble, it really is just taking the time to say to myself that as long as I have the general idea, I can totally construct a garment.
So, after my leap of faith, here’s what we’ve got!
Love this bodice area, so different than anything I’ve made.
Here’s a contrast detail of the front with the pleating, different, but fitting to the overall style and design.
My first kick pleat! I have no idea why I haven’t made a dress or skirt with this in it, it’s super flirty and I quite like it.
If you wish to know anything else, I’ve expanded upon this just slightly on my blog: WhippedLife
