It was KCW last week. You could read all about it here. I made a t-shirt using the signature dress and a pair of shorts using the free pattern from oliver + s.
I never got to sit and sew for one whole hour this week. So I thought of not giving up and use the time I get to do the whole outfit. I know it took me a whole week to finish it up! But still I didn’t give up!!!
First and second day was all about cutting out the patterns.
Third and fourth day was sewing the shorts.
I used the same denim fabric I used here. But stitched it using hot pink thread for my baby girl.
Fifth and sixth day I used to sew up the T-shirt
Oh and today the last day I used it to snap it up and write up the post.
I know I didn’t abide by the rules. But I’m happy I participated in my first KCW. May be next time I’ll try my best to stick to the rules.
Till next time
The croquet dress from Oliver + S is this month’s flip this pattern at Frances and Suzanne. Here I present my version of this beautiful pattern.
Sewen using a silk solid and a voile print, I just love how it all came out together!
My flips are;
As you can see I added the floral print to the solid. As a color block dress. This was done just above the waist.
I gave both the sides an inch space near the chest area, because to give that gathering effect after adding the elastic.
For the sleeves I added some volume using the slash and spread method.
Added a piping with the floral voile to the sleeve.
And replaced the bow with a fabric flower.
Above all my favorite was the wooden button on the flower and the back.
I put together an outfit to my daughter which she love so much.
Thanks for reading.
Till next time
