This week I made a Colette Moneta dress for my Lovely Mum, so it’s her turn to be the glamour model!
I used some of our gorgeous jersey fabric which is soft and silky to the touch and drapes beautifully.
Colette Patterns are currently doing a Moneta dress sewalong so you can learn how to make this lovely easy to wear and easy to make dress.
I made myself one when the pattern first came out and it made it’s debut during Me Made May, if you missed it, here it is again:
This weeks project is a birthday present for one of my best friends whose birthday was yesterday. Its a Sewaholic Gabriola Skirt.
The fabric is a beatiful Blackberry blossom print cotton lawn that is from our website so it drapes beautifully.
I have got several projects lined up for next week so there may be more than one, I am going to be pretty busy!
This week I decided to take part in not just one sewalong, but two! I joined in with the Sewaholic Belcarra Blouse sew-along and the Colette Mabel Skirt sew-along.
I have already made a couple of Belcarra blouses and I wanted to make this one a bit different so I used some of the fabulous new lace fabric that we have in stock to make some lacey sleeves on this black cotton lawn version.
The Mabel skirt I made is the longer pencil skirt version and I used light weight cotton jersey knit in glamourous red. Both patterns are really easy to make and it only took me a couple of days to put together this gorgeous outfit!
I have also signed up for the 1 project per week sewing challenge that fellow blogger bernieandi has organised so this outfit is my week 1 for that too, ticks lots of boxes!
