The Burda Style Ruffled dress, same as the pink silk one.

This done I used linen and silk organza for the ruffles, a serger roller hem and cross stitched embroidery with the variegated thread.

Little Blue Dress

March 11, 2016

 

I do not recall the pattern number, but it is Burda, I will look it up.

The fabric is a thin cotton from Ikea, leftovers from the tent project.

The flounces are silk and mommy has a dress with the same ruffles in blue that I hope to post soon.

I’ve added a few lines of embroidery using the build in designs on the HE120 in a variegated thread and flat buttons in the back.

I have sewn this at the end of last summer, and now it is a perfect fit, not for long as she grows so fast. Time to get started again on another one😉

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.

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

Twisted Green Dress

September 12, 2011

One of the pending pictures for a dress I have sewn a while ago.

At a baby shower with my friend Oana (7+months)

I thought this is a very similar design with Oana’s purple dress, with the twisted knot, and really like how the colors go together.

Crochet Dress

August 22, 2009

Pattern for the crochet top/dress

https://mirelap.wordpress.com/2008/02/12/crochet-top/

Measurements:

Bust: 80cm

Length: 86cm

Hem: 100cm

Thread: 220g

Crochet hook: Nr.2

Pattern: see drawing

Pattern_crochet_dress

. = chain

x = single crochet

| = double crochet

all those curved lines are chains of 2, 4 and 6 chains as indicated in the drawing.

Test square: for a width of 3 pattern repeats and a height of 3 patterns => 10x10cm

Back:

Start with the shoulder. Chain 13 + 3 for the edge and you will continue downwards. Make 5 rounds of the pattern and put the work aside.

Start with the other shoulder. After the 6th round of pattern chain 48 (i chained 53 just to make it larger).

After the 48 chain, link it with the other shoulder strap. The work will have 10 pattern repeats per width.

Continue work until you have 7 pattern repeats on the vertical.

Armhole shaping:

Make it wider with 7 chains + 3 chains for height, on each side, for the armhole shaping. Work will have 12 pattern repeats per width.

At 13 pattern repeats in total per vertical, first row increase to 5 chains instead of 4. Next row the height will increase from 3 to 4 chains. Next row the chain is increased from 6 chain stitches to 7 chain stitches.

At 19 pattern repeats in total per vertical, increase everything with one chain:

instead of 5 chain stitches => 6 chain stitches

instead of 4 chain stitches => 5 chain stitches on the side

instead of 7 chain stitches => 8 chain stitches

After 26 pattern repeats the back side is finished.

Front:

Just like the back. I did mine wider with two pattern repeats to fit the bust.

BurdaStyle – Danielle

January 27, 2008
BurdaStyle-Danielle, originally uploaded by fmirela.

This is my version of the BurdaStyle – Danielle dress.

Having to work with just a little over a yard of crushed velvet, I had to transform this dress into a sleeveless top.

A little insight on sewing velvet can be found on the BurdaStyle site among many other useful how-tos, some of which I followed sewing the Danielle.

For finishing the neckline and underarms I used the technique described here: sew an all in one facing.

A little blue velvet ribbon accents the cut under the bust and the box pleats create a cute baby doll look.
