Can you believe Indie Pattern Month is nearly over? I have seen so many inspiring makes! So for my last entry I have made 2 Giselle dresses. Its a pattern by Kate&Rose for maxi style dresses.
What pattern did you use? Why did you choose it, what appealed about it?
I love the timeless folkwear feel to it. Plus it has a 70s boho feel that I liked.
What fabric did you use? Why did you choose it?
For View A I used a linen and for View B cotton lawn. The lawn has this bold print that just I just loved at sight. Linen is my absolute favourite material to work with. It also a cool fabric for summer.
How did you find the pattern to use – was it good? Was it hard? Would you recommend it?Would you change anything next time?
I have used this pattern before alreay when I made a Winters Giselle dress for Froctober So it already comes with Yes! I would make it again endorsement! I made an adjustment on the bust when I first made it so its TNT now. The instructions are very thorough and good. I love the pockets on the linen dress so I will probably always be adding pockets.
Did you include any fun/interesting/new-to-you details?
Well I used a lot of decorative topstitching on the linen dress. I also used floral bias binding on the neck line for a little pop of colour. The pockets are made in ditsy floral fabric. I love it! I used flat felled seams on the the linen dress. This was a first for me and It makes for a very professional finish. For the sleeveless dress I used black satin bias binding on the armholes and the neckline.
What do you think of your finished garment? Do you like it?
I really love these dresses. So comfy especially on hot days like we had in Essex this weekend! More details and pictures on my blog SaturdayNightStitch
I have thoroughly enjoyed IPM2015 and three cheers to the Monthly Stitch team for all their hard work setting up this wonderful event.
Happy sewing everyone!
