The Nore for women: also for woven fabrics!

By 24/06/2017Blog

I have great news for you. The Nore dress for teens and women has a big advantage: it’s suitable for stretch AND woven fabrics. Hooray! This gives you so many opportunities when picking fabrics for your project. You can even combine both stretch and woven fabrics in one creation as I will show you in a couple of days.

Today I present the most easy version of the pattern. A basic top without pockets or split panels. The neckline, armholes and hem are all finished with bias binding. (A small tip: when you use bias binding, choose one made from a soft fabric AND a narrow version. This gives a perfect result.)

I bought the fabric in Haarlem as Nina and I were going to a next sew social meeting. We had a screen printing workshop planned but I forgot my fabrics and bought a super basic AND cheap fabric to do some tests. I printed this geometrical figure on thick felt too. Of course it was Barbara from Bobbinhood that showed us many tips and tricks. It was an unforgettable experience. Especially since at once I got the chance to meet some great European bloggers… again!

Back to my top. Well actually I have nothing more to add. Or maybe I only feel like mentioning that I combined it with one of my new favourite skirts. It’s a Kristy pencil skirt from LMV sewn in another piece of Nosh fabrics. Oh I did it again. Oops! The skirt can be finished in less than one hours so I already made 4 of them to take with me on holiday. It’s a very compact garment that needs no ironing. Perfect to go camping.

What are your holiday plans? Will you take some Nore dresses and tops with you? I truly hope so. See you tomorrow with another totally different Nore dress. :)

    The dress look great Marte. I am trying to imagine if it will fit my body type :) Also, buying fabric because you forgot yours on the way to a sewing event sounds like the best excuse ever!
