Back with something exciting to share! :-)
The lovely ladies from By Hand London finally released another beautiful pattern called Flora and "YAY", I was one of the lucky seamstresses asked for pattern testing! Thanks Charlotte, Elisalex and Victoria! You ladies rock!
This has been my first pattern testing! So exciting. I really put my best efforts to pay attention on every little step, so that I could give better feedback. Usually, I am more like the quick sewing type of girl. I carefully copy a pattern and then try to sew all pieces together only really reading when definitely necessary.
Anyway, back to the pattern. Flora comes in 4 variations, actually. You can choose from 2 different sleeveless bodice variations, either faux wrap style or tank bodice with square neckline. And combine with either dipped or straight circle skirt.
I fell for the faux wrap style bodice and the dipped hem circle skirt.
And here is my 'flamenco' Flora:
The fabric is crepe from John Kaldor. Received this beautiful piece especially for the pattern testing from Susan of SEWBOX. Thank you so much Susan. I love it and will definitely stop by your shop in future again!
Ok, I did not plan to do a flamenco version, but this is pretty much what it turned out to be. And why not? This is definitely one of the spiciest pieces in my wardrobe!
Hope you enjoy it! All thumbs up for Flora!!! Spring is knocking on the door, so why wouldn't you give it a try?
