Lace Waist Dress – without the lace

August 8, 2014

Finished sewing this dress finally! In black and white flowers print.
Had to stitch closed the darts in the upper and lower back to reduce puffiness and take it in about 1cm on each side.

Silk from India

July 29, 2014

 

 

My friend Joytsna went to India for vacation and got me this gorgeous pink silk fabric.

I combined it with the red floral print silk organza and used a Burda pattern to sew it.

I left the edges of the flounces unfinished and fraying on purpose, it gives it a light feel.

Picture are from Roxana’s Baptism in 2012 (I was still pregnant at that time, hence the big belly)

A dress for Sonia.

I’ve taken inspiration from the Romanian folks wear, the traditional stitches and colors found on blouses.

The pattern is a little smoked dress, also known as a bishop dress.

I debated doing the hand embroidery and smocking…vs machine made…this time, the machine won.

For anyone with a great embroidery machine, here are some more designs I wanted to try…could no longer launch my Windows virtual machines, where the PED Basic was installed…oh well will have to re-do it one day.

Pattern: Burda

Fabric: white poplin

Fabric stabilizer: starch spray

Thread: regular sewing thread for the embroidery, no shiny stuff
