It is autumn dear followers! But luckily, today we are delighted with 19 degrees celsius in Germany! Yaaay! So these days I will try to wear as many of the dresses I have made, before it will turn cold again.
Anyway, here comes one of my latest projects! I fell in love with corduroy this autumn. It is soft, warm and has a shiny deep color! Perfect for a simple everyday casual dress I thought! And this is what I came up with.
It is an easy fit jumper dress with two pockets on the front and a hidden zipper on the back.
You can't see well on the photos, but this dress involved quite some hand stitching. For example, I hand-stitched the pockets in order to avoid top-stitching. I don't like the hair of the corduroy to be pressed by any seams, so the blind stitch was the only solution that came up my mind.
I also added a facing on the top part of this dress (actually, also by hand) to add a little stiffness around the bust.
What do you think of this dress? I have had this model in mind for quite some time already, but couldn't find a pattern for it. That is why I ended up making a muslin (more or less freestyle) and fit it to my body. I am just asking because, if there was a great demand, I would think about preparing a pattern for free downloading (only one size, sorry, I am still not able to grade patterns :( ).
Just let me know! :)
So let's enjoy this day and HAPPY HALLOWEEN by the way! ;)
