A while ago, I fell in such love with a dress made out of the most gorgeous frenchy fabric, made by Enken, a lovely fellow Aussie seamstress. Check out her beautiful dress here.
As I said over at Sew Retro, I felt I must have a lovely frenchy dress of my own -- thank you Enken for such a lovely dress inspiration!!
So I went searching and found a Michael Miller cotton with Eiffel Towers all over it. It was love at first fabric sight.
I wanted a retro yet sort of modern style, so I morphed together a few patterns -- and ended up with this:
I wore it to my work Christmas party, back in early December (I did say I needed to play catch up with my sewing posts!). I got lots of nice comments, and a bunch of ladies organised for me to host a 'master sewing class' for them, to teach them how to sew on a button and hem their trousers! Cool!!!!
Does anyone else have serious fabric/pattern lust when seeing other seamstress' creations? I seem to constantly -- like with the Wiksten tulip skirt.
