the (striped) grey dress
Can you tell this is my favorite one ? I love, love, love it. It's a mix of two patterns from this Japanese pattern book. I mainly cut one pattern (which has the pockets on it) and just applied the neckline from another.
No buttons for me (supposedly it has a line of buttons at the back) but just sewed in a zipper instead. Didn't have enough fabric to cut a bias skirt, but I'm so happy with it anyway.
I baldy want to make another one, but not sure if a fall or even winter version of this would work out (maybe with some sort of top underneath and a cardigan on top ?)
And that's it for dresses for now. It's probably my favorite thing to sew, so when we come back from vacation I'm really looking forward to a bunch of new projects to make !
