Like a Diva – Sheath dress

Finally my long overdue Sheath Dress. I actually finished weeks ago but never found time for the photo shoot… you know given my Princess and Diva status is hard to find a spare moment :o) I’m sure the same happens to you too.

Finalmente il vestito che vi dovevo da tempo. L’avevo finito tempo fa ma non trovavo mai il tempo per le foto… visto il mio status di Principessa e Diva e’ difficile trovare un momento libero :o) Capita anche a voi, no?

The pattern is a self-drafted princess-seam dress. It’s pretty much the same pattern I used for my Ice-cream top (there I added the center gather)

Il modello e’ fatto da me. E’ praticamente lo stesso che ho usato per il mio Top Gelato (a cui avevo aggiunto le pieghe centrali)

I used matching bias tape to finish the shoulder seam and neckline. And added an invisible zipper on the side.

Do you know you could make this dress using the Pendrell Blouse? You could lenghten the hem to turn it into a skirt length. I would take it in a bit and add a zipper for a more fitted look.

Ho usato dello sbieco coordinato per rifinire le spalle e il girocollo. E ho aggiunto una lamo invisibile sul lato.

Sapete che potreste fare questo vestito usando il modello del top Pendrell. Basta allungare un po’ l’orlo. Pero’  la stringerei un po’ e aggiungerei una lampo per renderlo piu’ aderente.

Here is another view. I decided to leave it a bit loose…Do you think I should have taken it in more?

Ecco un’altra vista. Ho deciso di lasciare il modello un po’ largo… Che ne dite, avrei dovuto stringerlo ancora?

And this is the church that was behind me all the time. I love the simple architecture.

E questa e’ la chiesa che era alle mie spalle. Mi piace la semplicità dell’architettura.

Have a great start of the week…I will be finalising my FESA sew-along list and making pressing templates after seeing this great video on Threads

Buon inizio settimana… io cerchero’ di finire la lista per il gruppo di cucito FESA e di creare i modelli per aiutarmi a stirare grazie a questo fantastico video su Threads

  1. Love this dress! It fits quite well, in my opinion, but if you think you want it a tad tighter you can always wear it a couple of times, see how it feels, and make that change later if you still think you want a tighter fit. I must also say that I really enjoy how you change the scenery for your photos shoots. Mine are always taken hurriedly in my back yard… photography is not one of my husband’s hobbies!


  2. Just wish to say your article is as surprising. The clearness in your post is just nice and i could assume you’re an expert on this subject. Well with your permission let me to grab your feed to keep updated with forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please continue the rewarding work.
