Pattern: Cami dress by Pauline Alice and Circle skirt app by ByHandLondon
Fabric: lightweight shirting fabric
Once I start, I can’t stop myself. So here my entry for the challenge Franken-Indie. In fact the mix is from one pattern (the Cami dress) and one tutorial (the circle skirt), but I hope it is fine as well.
It was my first pattern from this indie designer and I have to say I am very happy with it. I started with the dress in mind and ended with a peplum top. Why? I just choose what I am sure I can wear more in my mummy life (by the way the top is also really good for nursing!). I made some modifications from the original pattern to get what I wanted. The first one was adding 3 cm to the torso to hit my waist at the right point. I have omitted the sleeves and the collar; I kept just the original under collar. For the peplum I used the By Hand London app and calculated the radius for a half circle skirt (for the length I measured where I wanted the peplum to hit my hips).
The buttons are from a local shop, I love them. I am wearing most of the time this top with jeans, but I think it would work also with a skirt for a more elegant outfit.
I am wearing it quite often, so I can say that the experiment is successful, at least for me. Happy sewing everyone.
