Better late than ever, right?
This was going to be my entry for the Put a Bird on It challenge, but I´ve been feeling really sick lately (I think this has to do with the fact that I am pregnant with twins, ha!) and I just couldn´t sew at all…
But I am feeling like myself again now, so I made the dress for the Indie Pattern Month.
I chose my beloved pattern, the best pattern in my opinion, the Lady Skater Dress from Kitschy Coo. I made size 5, but shortened the bodice a little. I don´t have to say that I love this pattern, the fitting is great, the instructions are great, I already made several versions of it, and I don´t plan to stop making them any time soon…
To be honest, this was not a good fabric choice for this patttern. Although the fabric is beautiful, the knit is too thin, and on this dress, it shows every lump and bump. Since I am now with a baby bump. I don´t really mind…I finished all the seams with my serger, and added knit stay tape on the shoulders, as I always do.
I love these cute birds!
As for pattern placement, I wanted lots of flowers on the top, and a border at the bottom, I think it looks good this way.
So this is it for now, I already made another dress this week, I will show you soon!
And here is a photo of my (still) kind of small bump!
Do you guys have any suggestion for good patterns, suitable for maternity? Please let me know!
All the best from Brazil,
