Sew many dresses....

After lots of planning and few patterns testing (here,here,here,here,here) from the book "Sew Many Dresses, Sew Little Time"-the winning combination for me is basic bodice pattern and dirndl or box-pleat skirt. So this summer I have made three dresses from the book.
First is blue floral poplin dress. Lovely, light, summer, comfortable dress.
Pattern: Basic bodice and gathered skirt
Fabric: cotton poplin
Second dress: 50’s vibe, white with abstract print
Pattern: Basic bodice and box-pleat skirt
Fabric: stretch cotton sateen
Who could resist the flamingos this year? I couldn't. Funny pink flamingo dress.
Pattern: Basic bodice with few random pleats made at the skirt.
Fabric: stretch cotton sateen

My summer sewing

Well, I'm sewing but not writing about it. Again.
The summer is over and most of my sewn garments are irrelevant for upcoming season. But I am still going to post some pictures, just to keep on track with my on line sewing journal.
First I done some refashion.
Do you remember my Shirred summer dress from 2009? I wore it a lot.
Now it is new dress, adapted to this season ultimate cold shoulder trend.
It was easy sewing. Most difficult part was to rip off smocked part. Fortunately the previous dress was wide enough, so it was possible to cut the ruffle part from the width of the dress.
And voila! New dress and trendy girl.
Gold lace is recycled from green skirt I also made in 2009.
Fabric: Cotton
Alterations: made just one ruffle
