Butterfly dream dress

I wonder why I didn't sew this dress earlier.This is a type of dress I love and gladly wear.
Fabric: Cotton
Alterations: This is a pattern for wedding dress, so I made it shorter. :) Also I made a "belt" from simple gray grosgrain ribbon and wrapped it around the waist with the bow.
I will certainly sew it again.

I am a "cat person", but unfortunately I can't have a cat. My son is allergic and we live in an apartment so I have to satisfy by following on instagram this cute Nala cat, or I can sew a dress with cat prints.
Fabric: Cotton with elastane
Alterations: added length

Little red dress

Little red dress was on my sewing list for ages. Finally I have made it. Well, my fabric is not quite red but that's me.
Pattern is already tested, they said it's one of most loved Burda patterns. I definitely love it, a lot.
Fabric: Quilting cotton

Pink rose romantic sheath dress

Here it is one more pattern for timeless dress. This is the second time I've used it.
Fabric: cotton sateen
Alterations: as last time -made back v-neck less deep (bra friendly) omitted the bow at the back.
Very happy with this pattern, fabric choice and dress fit.
In my humble opinion: This is a winning combination.

Coral pink red lace dress

I am little bit late in blogging about garments I made for this spring/summer season. All pieces I planned to sew are finished, worn several times, but never photographed. Mostly because all of them I wore during our evening outings; bad time for clear photos.

So, today I'll show you one more lace dress. Pattern is from February 2011 Burda Magazine. This year I have made six different garments from this issue.
Fabric: Coral/red pink cotton lace for the top fabric and beige rayon jersey for the lining.
Lovely easy pattern for timeless dress.
