My Needlecord Rosa DressJanuary 25, 2017 / byTilly / Categories : Feeds
If you follow me on Instagram Stories, you may have seen that these cuff facings weren't actually meant to look like this. I was sewing in the evening when I was tired and my mind was elsewhere - obviously not a sensible plan in retrospect! As I wasn't concentrating on what I was doing, I accidentally sewed the cuff facings to the right side of the fabric - they were meant to be hidden on the inside.
I considered starting again with new sleeves... for all of five seconds... and decided that this mistake was now a "design feature" ;) Life is just too short to worry about little things like that. And now that I've finished my dress, I really like the contrast cuff facings!

So I LOVE overalls, i adore them on the kids and I have a pair myself. I had this plans of drafting my own pattern of *proper* overalls because all the patterns I had seen weren’t really the style I wanted. I did a *fancy* version for my Bright & Bold lil luxe mini collection but I didn’t have any *traditional* ones.
and then, i don’t even know how, i found the I Dig Dungarees as soon as they were released. I didn’t even know the designer, but after buying them (right away) I really, really, recommend Made by Jack’s Mum (i haven’t tried any other patterns from MBJM but if you’re sewing for a boy I would really check out the others!). The attention to detail in both the pattern and the instructions is something I super appreciate when I’m trying to sew things that are more complicated than a pair of shorts or a shirt.
