I chose a beautiful Ikat fabric as I'd never worked with this type of fabric before, I love how natural it is. Sadly this version is sold out, but there are lots of other styles to choose from.
It took me ages to decide which pattern to use, I wanted a dress but something that I could dress up or down, so I decided to combine the bodice of the Sew Over It Betty dress with the skirt of the By Hand London Kim dress, and I love how it turned out.
I did make a slight adjustment to the back of the dress after it was completed as it was ever so slightly loose, I simply added a couple of small darts (watch the video below to see the detail up close). I also added my first ever decorative zip and love it!
I have recorded a video to show you all the details and this lovely fabric in much more detail so be sure to watch it below.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Sewing!!
