The ‘When life gives you lemons’ dress

Crazy fabric, evil pattern. What to do when life gives you lemons? Make a dress!

I used my old nemesis, Swedish Vi-Mönster 2196, and made some changes to the upper part, widening the neckline and the armscyes. Last time I used this pattern I figured it must be ment for a smurf!

The fabric is a heavy jersey, striped in… lime, purple and white. Yep. I figured, at least I can try the new and changed pattern with a fabric I don’t care about,  and it will probably be nice to lounge around in…

But, surprise! I actually like it! It’s crazy and loud, but it works! And most likely even better when not in horrible indoor light exaggerated by the camera flash…

As always, more on my blog, come take a look!

  • This fabric is crazy and I love it! Vintage patterns are fun but certainly strange in the way of fit….
