DIY Wrap Swimsuit ( Third Version)

Here is the last garment I made last month, a wrap-style swimsuit made from lycra fabric from my stash. I made two similar swimsuits before and I was happy with the fit. So, I was okay with the process and was sure it would turn out as well as the previous ones.  The process took me two days, just right before our holiday. And I immediately packed it as soon as it finished.  I love this wrap swimsuit, the design hides the fatty tummy and is comfortable to wear for swimming. Also, the wrap style adds something special, so girly and stylish. For the pattern, I used my self-draft (TNT: tried and true pattern) and the sewing process was started by cutting the fabric pieces, sewing the elastic on the front lining and continuing to pin the necessary parts. I prepared the bands for the back ties and the side wrap. Sewing them as a loop and turning them inside out. I pinned and sewed the bands (ties) on the right front piece (wrap) and backside.

Striped Dress In Jersey Knit

A couple weeks ago I planned to make swing dress 08/2012 from Burdastyle with striped jersey knit but the dress didn't turn out well as I expected. The side panel of the dress was fine but the neck was too big for me and the skirt didn't suit me so well. So I decided to refashion the dress. I turn the gathered skirt to pencil skirt, I throw the top to the trash:( and make another top pattern with the left over fabric (lucky me). And I reused the short sleeves. It's really annoying work but I have to. I will definitely make  swing dress  another time but for sure I have to work with the pattern and I'll try with another type of fabric.

November Mood on A-Line Dress

  This dress basic on Burdastyle A-line Dress 08/2012 . A very girly dress with front slite and high low skirt, made from two different type of fabric. For the top, I used 1.5 yard of crepe de chine flower print fabric. For the skirt, I used 1.5 yard of lightweight polyester-cotton fabric in black colour. It was very easy project (for me), I spent 8 hours in total to make this dress including transfering the pattern and cutting the fabric.
