I cannot get enough of the huge variety of pattern magazines that are available, relatively cheaply, here in Brussels, Belgium. There are more than six or seven entirely different publications as well as others available to order. The problem is that I buy them, devour them and then put them on the shelf. This time I was determined to do something about it.
I picked up the November/December edition of La Maison Victor (a Belgian only publication I believe) and made the Pia dress. I’m not much of a dress wearer and I don’t think I’ve ever sewn with cotton lawn before so this was a departure for me. It feels so girly! It appealed to me though, as easy to wear and not too vintage-y.
I was able to use up scraps of denim (much more my kind of fabric!) for the top section and it was pretty easy to put together once I’d traced it out.
More construction details are over on my blog as well as me waxing lyrical about other pattern magazines that I’m addicted to!
P.S. This is my first post with the Monthly Stitch – thanks for welcoming me!
