Classic Dress – Perfect Wardrobe Bulider

The time has arrived when I needed to add few new pieces to my wardrobe.

Few years ago I have made the dress – wearable muslin – based on the Vogue Pattern V8787.  I have made a version with asymmetrical neckline with left-side gather.

I had a beautiful marine blue crepe wool in my stash – perfect for this dress. I cut out the pattern pieces about a year ago (wow! time flies) and somehow did not feel like sewing.

The dress has silk organza as interlining and Venezia lining.

I am so glad I have finished it eventually! I enjoy every time I wear this dress.

This classic dress is a great wardrobe builder. Perfect to wear together with a French jacket or just a cardigan or on her own. RPT sleek glass jewellery match perfect with it.

I am sure I will use this Vogue Pattern V8787 many times.

Less than 1 meter fabric … no problem!

You have these moments when you see a piece of a fabric and immediately know what you want to make out of it.

That was exactly with this piece of a little stretch woven satin.  It was just enough to make this top with drape neckline. I used the Vogue pattern V9771.

This is perfect top to wear with my pencil skirts or pants.

Both – front and back, are cut on bias thus no bust darts are needed.

Saturday Project

Few weeks ago during the Stoffenspektakel (fabric market) I have bought this linen fabric with the world map printed on it. It is a perfect motive for an inner pocket my DH asked me to make for him. It will be attached in the suitcase for all small things he needs during his business trips.

After taking measurements I have drawn the pattern of the basis on the fabric and thread-traced.

Looking for a unique fabric? Design it yourself!

During the Stoffenspektakel (fabric market) I came across a new stand of Belgium company Design On Textile.

Design on Textile is a Belgian company specialized in online textile printing that makes it possible to express one self. Framed prints on fabric – Own fabric designs – may not be new, but what is new is that you can already order from a meter of your own fabric.

Stoffenspektakel Apeldoorn

Due to all family issues I was not able to visit previous fabric markets and I was not so sure if I should go there this time – I know I could not resist fabrics.

However my DH asked me to make for him an inner pocket he could attach in the suitcase for all small things he needs during his business trips. So here I go to Stoffenspektakel (fabric market) spring edition.

I have found out these 2 fabrics – linen with prints, to use for this purpose.

Then I have seen this linen with printed cats on it – I had to buy. I will either make a jacket or dress out of it. Or other things for home. I don’t know yet.

It was difficult to resist – new fabrics in my fabric stash

This is a part of fabrics I have bought during the fabric market – Stoffenspektakel in Zwolle.

There are mostly jerseys for tops (black, red and yellow) – quick projects – as well as a stretch fabric for pants. Yes, I will have to tackle this topic again. Maybe I will have to find a sewing partner to help me with fitting. This will be in-between project while working on a French jacket – a part of the Little French Jacket sew-along.

It’s official I am a member of Branchevereniging van Kleermakers & Modevakscholen

While wandering between stands at the fabric market – Stoffenspektakel in Zwolle, I have received confirmation that I am officially accepted as a member of Branchevereniging van Kleermakers & Modevakscholen – BvK – (Dutch Association of Tailor and Fashion Design Schools).

In June this year I participated for the first time in the regional meeting of the BvK (not yet as a member) and I was very impressed by the knowledge and experience of all participating members.
