Made By You...
This dress has to be one of my favourite things I have ever made. It is one of the first times I’ve put on a me made item and though wow, I did that!! Although I planned to make it for a wedding I’ve already had so much wear from it dressed down with trainers, it’s quickly becoming a firm favourite in my wardrobe. I chose our beautiful Midnight Garden Fabric in navy for the project and I’m so glad I did because it has such a lovely drape and is really comfortable to wear. The pattern is the Dusky Rose dress by @madelabel_ This was my first time using one of their patterns and I was really impressed with their simple to follow video tutorials.
Feel like I need to start documenting my makes... starting with a poor quality mirror selfie of this #duskyrosedress from @madelabel_ 💃
This is the dusky rose pattern from @madelabel_ in #viscose from @stoffentijd with leather shoes from @marutifootwear 💕 de jas en het hoedje hingen al enige tijd in mijn kast 😊.• swipe for more details! •
Met de inspiratie van @ell.mini de aanmoediging van @marina_nicole_nl het patroon van @madelabel_ en de stof van @yes_fabrics maakte ik deze mooie #duskyrosedress. Het eerste #selfishsewing project op mijn @bernina.benelux🌹
This dress has got to be one of my favourite things I’ve made. The #duskyrosedress by @madelabel_ was released today and I was so very lucky to test for them! One of the best things about it was the video they released along side the pattern, I’m such a visual learner, it was so good to watch as I went along. I’m looking forward to next summer so I can wear it out and about ☀️ Fabric is from @spotlightstores #madelabel #memade #memadewardrobe #summersewing #spotlightstores #adelaidesewists #sewadelaide
My second dress is complete 😍I knew I would love the result and I really do! So many tricky bits for me. The binding was rather tricky to finish well, the French seams were a first and gathering; I'm not great at gathering (however this is only my second time 😁) The fabric has a vintage feel and works really well this this style of dress. I adore the details on the dress, the ruffle sleeves, the front tie and the rise and fall hem. I expected to wear it today but plans got cancelled so I may wear it on my next food shop 😂 The video tutorial was great, something I hadn't used before but I would have liked a paper version too for reference . Also I found the skirt section was skimmed over a bit more than the top. I put on the waist incorrectly and I knew this before I did it. Unfortunately however many times I watched it back I couldn't work out how NOT to do it the wrong way! The same label do a beautiful Frankie wrap skirt, the pattern is free so check it out! I have one on my make list. Pattern #duskyrosedress by @madelabel_ Fabric Viscose challis from @rainbowfabrickilburn
Flower power 🌸 I do love a floral! ☺️ Snapped a pic of my newly finished #duskyrosedress by @madelabel_ I made it in a peachskin (also called “boardshort fabric”) so it has a lot more volume than if it it was made in a rayon. The print I loooove... but it’s from the unfortunately now-defunct @fridaylovefabrics so no more for me 😕 I have to say that the line drawings would give a better view of the features of the dress... my photos were taken in 4 minutes with two children running around 😆 I don’t usually wear full length so it’s taken a lot of getting used to but lots of swishing has been accomplished ☺️
Hot off the sewing machine in time for this summery weather! Fabric is Minerva Exclusive Tropical Tiles Viscose, pattern is the Dusky Rose dress by @madelabel_ . Full post with details over on Minerva!
Pattern: @madelabel_ #duskyrosedress Fabric: Javanese viscose from @abakhanfabrics. I altered the skirt to look like @kivari_the_label’s tie front mini dress
So I was busy making another me-made wardrobe outfit this summer with this beautiful Tie Front Maxi Dress!See how I made it by checking the link in by bio 🔗 The dress is the Dusky Rose by @madelabel_ and is just a beautiful pattern to work with. The fabric is a blue and white floral viscose from @poundfabrics and is a steal! Viscose is one of my favs to sew with. What do you think of this dress? Perfect for the transitioning seasons, no?
