You know the story.
Total knock off of this shirt
It had the concealed front and a nice collar stand.
I just left off the collar and added 9 inches to the hem, following the shape.
The shirting was from eBay. A gorgeous, silky cotton with crisp hand.
The embroidered flower was also an eBay purchase. I cut it to size, pressed it in place with a Goddess sheet (it has glue on the reverse) and then topstitched it for extra security.
The concealed placket was surprisingly easy even with Lekala's instructions.
The buttons, MoP from my dear friend Katy
The neck ruffle was an easy swap out.
I do like the elegant neck pleats.
I love back shoulder darts, they give such a nice fit.
It was meant to be a tunic but came out more like a dress.
The 'fit and flare' is so nice on her.
So smart on her
I love this dress very much because the Lekala pattern fits me perfectly.
I think that where mummy put the embroidered blossoms was perfectly placed. I love the cuffs with the little peak of skin showing and I can not wait to wear it next.
Another happy sew!

Hi Readers! I am undoubtedly a dresses girl, but sometimes I want to throw on some slim-fitting jeans. The thing is, when I wear skinny jeans, I don’t want to pair them with a curve-hugging top, and instead want to opt for a longer looser fitting blouse that covers up my mid-section. Yep, I don’t…read more
