Mont Saint Michel dress
I drafted the pattern of this dress after a vintage one. It's a very simple design, the front bodice has 4 darts, there is a center back invisible zipper and the skirt is just fully gathered. But that was one of my favourite dress this summer. .
I used a white cotton with small dark blue stars. The bodice is underlined and the skirt is lined to avoid transparence.
For this dress, I used the same self drafted pattern. The only difference is not visible here, but the back is a lot lower, almost reachs the waist. I made this dress to attend my cousin's wedding.
La vie en rose
Not the easiest pattern with the swan collar but the result is so nice. I used Burda 119 08/11 and I had the spanish version, which complicates a little more the understanding of the instructions. But I made sense (more or less) of the explanations. I love the vintage feel of the dress. Well, from the pictures, that might be quite obvious, but I am a sucker for vintage style.
Lonsdale blossoms dress
My motivation to buy my own sewing machine comes from Tasia from The Sewaholic blog. When I discovered her blog, I spent hours and hours drooling over her beautifully made dresses. So when she launched her own patterns, I could not resist. And the Lonsdale is no exception. It's a great dress for summer, easy to make but with such adorable details that make it one of a kind. I used a linen-cotton fabric with a cherry blossom pattern.
Made for my friend Silvia's birthday. A beautiful dress named after a beautiful girl!
I drafted the pattern after Butterick Walk-Away dress. It's definitely not easy to spot them but the dress opens and closes in the front with some small buttons. Again, flowers and pink, I guess that's my winning combination.
