When this competition was announced, I had no more excuse and I finally bought my favourite pattern of Compagnie M’s – the Louisa dress. The pattern hack category seemed perfect to make something warm with longer sleeves for the cool season ahead in Germany. Trouble was – I traditionally shy away from sewing zippers (I know. Silly). So to solve that issue, rather than facing my (zipper-)fear, I thought I would simply add a hood instead of a zipper – that makes total sense, right?
Anyway, the girlie loves it – and sadly that is not always a given anymore these days with stuff I make for her. So to us, this one is already a winner.
I’ll post more pictures on my instagram account: https://instagram.com/kayjaysews/
