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 !

Oh I think this is my favorite too! I really, really love the collar on this! I just got some Japanese books and am itching to make so many of the patterns in them. I just need to find the time!

Wow that dress is gorgeous and you certainly look lovely in it. Really love the neckline and fabric you chose. Looks perfectly made too!

You could definitely make this for fall—it would be beautiful in a soft, pinwale corduroy.

I love love this one, the blue stripes, oh wow ( you know better than anyone my current thing for blue stripes). Have you thought of this pattern for the lecien fabric? it would work. OTOH I can not quite see this as a winter version, though I am sure you can surprise me by making it work.

All three of your new dresses are pretty (yes, I do like the 'granny-ish' one:) -- but this one is a KNOCKOUT! :) Looks beautiful on you -- I'd make more of this design, if I were you.

Não consigo decidir qual o mais bonito. Este também é qualquer coisa... Adoro a linha da saia, os bolsos e a gola. Não admira que seja o teu preferido, é mesmo adorável.
