Before my move to São Paulo, I had several projects already cut and waiting to be sewed. One of these projects was for Indie Pattern Month, this was suppose to be my entry for a frankenpattern…
Last week I finally finished sewing this dress, and I love it! The bottom is the skirt from Nettie bodysuit pattern, it´s a perfect pattern for a knit pencil skirt, and the top is my beloved, my most favorite pattern of all, The Lady Skater Dress. I modified the bodice to include the peplum and the small bow on the neckline.
I don´t know if peplums are still fashionable, but I really like them, they give me waist definition and make me look skinnier… (Although now looking at these pictures I am starting to think that this is only on my imagination, haha!)
I loved this fabric, it´s a textured knit, very stable and warm, not suitable for summer days, but it was ideal for this project.
Maybe this is cheating, but this is not a proper dress, I didn´t sew the skirt and top together, this way I can wear them separately, and have more options for my wardrobe!
This picture is just to show the texture of the fabric with more details.
All the best from Brazil,
