Couple days ago, when I woke up and saw the sun coming through my windows, I thought, oh no, one more hot sunny day.. Where has winter gone? How can I sew winter clothes when it’s like spring outside? How can I wear all the stuff I knitted when it’s more than 10°C? I love winter and I’m really missing all the happiness that it brings.. Back to the hot day.. It inspired me to make a summer dress for which I had 3 hours.. My plan was to pick a simple dress pattern, combine it with a fabric from my stash, and to finish with sewing until 3 PM when my sister comes home from work so we can go outside and take photos while there’s daylight.. Sadly, I needed 4 hours to finish this dress.. Photo shoot had to be delayed for next day.. On the other hand, sewing a semi lined dress in 4 hours is a kind of success.. Especially after my 2 month break from sewing..
The pattern is #124 from Burda 07/2014… I wasn’t sure if I liked this pattern, but still wanted to try it.. I found mustard viscose fabric in my stash (another remnant bin find).. Full length of 1.30 m was enough for this dress.. I used two rectangular pieces of 0.50x1 m for the skirt, and the rest of the fabric for the bodice.. The bodice is fully lined with yellow cotton.. There was not enough lining for the skirt too (I wear the dress with underskirt).. I was in a hurry, so I didn’t sew the pockets.. Maybe it would be better if the sweetheart neckline is a bit lower, but on the other hand, this way it’s more decent for daytime..
