A new pattern & GA winner!

By Friday,14 March,2014Blog, Lotta dress

To celebrate my 2.000 Facebook likes I wanted to do something special: not just giving away a pattern, but a hand made dress! A dress that still has to be released… But to be honest with you: this dress was only just in my mind and I didn’t had it sewn yet (at the time I posted the contest). So when I saw  the number of likes approaching that magical number, I though it was time to bring this ‘imaginary dress’ to life. After drawing one evening and sewing the next one, the dress was finished: the Lotta dress was born. I was not the only person happy with the result. When Lisa saw it for the first time she had 3 questions: Can I try it on? Can we take pictures? Can I also wear it for school? YES, YES, YES!! She was so cute and enthusiastic. Just like me (I have to admit).

At the end this was a very quick sewing project, but to me it’s a ‘less is more dress’. A basic bodice, with some cap sleeves and a folded collar, that is actually the lining of the dress… Two button and finished? Not quiet yet! I still have 4 options that I want to examine to add some unique pockets. No compagnie M. pattern without pockets anymore! So more dresses will be shown here the coming weeks. That’s for sure!

But the good thing is: I’m back. After the launch of the Louisa dress, I got overwhelmed. Didn’t know how to move on. Being afraid that anything I would present would not be ‘good enough’. That’s also why it took me so long to finalise the Julia sweater pattern. But finally after a couple of months, that feeling has disappeared! Hooray. I got a little bit reorganised, the blog meeting gave me boost, met some other pattern designers,… A fresh start! Hope you like the result?
