This fabric from Allotte is amazing don’t you think? I received it in the period that my Julia for women was launched. A long long time ago! ;) Liesbeth asked me whether I wanted to make a Julia with this fabric, but in the end I was sick of making Julia’s (I really was) and I turned this stunning fabric into a basic wrap dress. Since I don’t own the Burda 7828 pattern (or what number was it again?) I started from more sophisticated dress from La Maison Victor to end up with this one…
Since the fabric turned out a tad more pink then I expected it to be, I added this red detail. But still I have doubts from time to time: Is this not too pink for me? Without cardigan I don’t feel so confident in this dress but like this I’m ok with it. What do you think?
I made this wrap dress in the period that I was loosing weight, so I had to adjust the pattern a lot to end up with an acceptable fit. (Just didn’t know what size I had to pick.) I don’t know if it’s the pictures (taken about one month ago) but I have the impression my face has changed a lot since this photoshoot.
This morning my balance told me that I’m officially not too ‘fat’ anymore. That means I just went below BMI 25! Amazing feeling! Is anyone trying to stop eating sugar together with me? I still want to loose about 2kg and then I’ll start thinking of developing the Louisa for adults. Probably in September. Fingers crossed.
Why do I blog about this dress today? Well… Over at Jo Chapeau I’ve just read a blogpost with a stunning Nina. Jo combined her summer culottes with a sweater sewn with the same fabric in a different color…. She just reminded me in fact that I had this pictures on my computer… For about a month already! Oops… Hop over to Jo Chapeau for some more Nina inspiration!
