Finally I managed to sew Paco Peralta’s Treky dress…when I saw his drawings it was love at first sight. It just took six months for my love to materialize ;o)
From a technique point of view , this dress marks my first ever attempt at using flat piping.
I started off with a size M that I had to take in for my swayback, a bit at the sides and tapered the sleeves. I also lowered and widened the neckline. I used Ruth’s tutorial to put the dress together…she’s so clever!
As for styling…I never wear navy blue (but I got both fabric and piping for free) …I am always worried I look to serious in it… that’s why I decided to share some outtakes…I am not that serious after all…and for sure I won’t become a model any time soon!
After you’re told don’t look up…what can you do? Look down…right?
And here is when I try being a bit adventurous with my posing…and end up looking crazy, silly or dorky (the choice is yours)! On this is clear to me…this dress can be worn up or down…and it’s super comfy in a knit!
I wish you a week full of sewing fun! If you want to share your outtakes…I’d be happy to see them.
