Even before I’d sewn the very first Nore dress for myself, I knew that I wanted to hack my own pattern by combining it with the free A-line skirt that I drew for the Julia dress. Oh I love the result. It’s a totally different dress than the first one I showed you, don’t you think?
On a night out with Catherine, I was wearing this dress and she asked me to add this option to the pattern. So I did!
After I already wore the dress a couple of times, I cut the skirt off, added pockets and attached it again. While doing so I took new pictures for the instructions. The VIEW B is now part of the pattern. Not as a hack, but really as an extra option. Hooray! I’m glad that Catherine convinced me to add the option AND that I took the effort to add pockets. No Compagnie M. pattern without pockets, right?
And the good think about this skirt? You can mix & match it with the Julia sweater.
The fabric is a very special one from ‘In den beer’. I treasured it for a while and I’m glad I did. I kind of used all my favourite ‘In de beer’ fabrics for my new project. More details will follow soon!
The front and back of the fabric have a different structure, that’s why I turned the fabric for the cuffs, waistband and hem (I added a small hemband).
Which option do you like most? Or maybe you’ll sew all of them? That’s maybe the best idea! ;)
