The Lekala #4269
Lidia is planning her capsule wardrobe and she saw a dress she really liked on Witchery.
dress available here
I found the perfect fabric but it was sold out!
Jed checked out a few Spotters store when he was in the city, for business and found this spotty rayon instead.
After scouring Lekala I found the above blouse that looked pretty
The pattern is custom fit to Lidia's measurements. The mods I made was to add 5 inches to the hem, omit the collar and lengthen the sleeve by 5 inches so I could sew a deep hem and not have a wrong side showing when it is rolled up.
I double cut the front yokes so that they were self faced.
I caught the tucks to the inside to create pleats and stitched them in place to the 3 inch mark.
The fit was amazing, I could not believe how well it fit her.
Lidia is very, very slim but has quite broad shoulders. It is near impossible to get her anything nice in the shops.
I purchased the belt from here.
I did find a cheaper one here but it was pretty crappy so it went in the dress up box.
I love the roll up sleeves, so smart.
She can wear it as a dress now but it will make a lovely tunic over leggings too.
I am absolutely in love with this dress I was so excited when Mum showed me the pattern, I thought it was amazing.
I love how drapey the fabric is and the buttons just look so perfect. So far, I have already worn it once and that was for the ANZAC day ceremony.
