Never have such a fabric and pattern been destined to go together as much as my Charlotte Kan Tie Dress and my thick white jersey:
To be honest I think it was actually an off cut of a fancy dress costume and has been in my stash forever (in case you were wondering it was Princess Leia outfit)
It just suited this make so much.
So How Did It Sew?
Completed: 11th September
At first, i was really worried about the sizing so me being me, i panicked and added a couple of inches. I even made a separate pattern to cater for this. Turns out, classic story with me, I am not as fat as i think i am ( or should i say as fat as i measure)
So I made it bigger then ended up unpicking it and cutting it to the original large size of the pattern.
So the dress took much longer to make than it should – but omg it was worth it, it looked so stylish and modern, even the crazy little pocket was super cute. This is definitely one to be worn with some old converse and a checked shirt for that uber grunge vibe.
This is definitely one that will become a staple, but I will be fussy on what fabric I make it from.
