One Pattern- Multiple Dresses

26 Feb

Hello everyone, as promised, the dresses I have made from the Yoshiko Tsukiori pattern book I reviewed last week.

I loved this pattern as it was the first project that I had started and actually finished. I went on to make two more dresses using the same pattern, each one I got quicker and quicker therefore successfully finishing within one sitting and not just being put into the pile of WIPs. The third one I changed slightly, inserted a zip and a Peter Pan collar.

Here they are…..

The first dress was the stripes one. I had a vision of having a stripes dress so off I went to the fabric shop and there a roll of it was. How had I not seen it before, and a bargain of £1.50 a metre (there may be a reason for that). I then went my book as I was disparate to use this fabric and disparate to make something from the Stylish Dress Book. So I combined the two and I absolutely love it. It goes so well with my red wellies.

The second was the black number. I had to unfortunately go to a funeral and realised the night before I had nothing to wear. So where to turn? Back to the trusty pattern. I didn’t have enough for the whole dress so I had to put in the polka dot panel. I think it worked quite well. I don’t really wear black but this dress has come out on more than one occasion.

The third was also made from scraps in the material tin hence the two tone. This is my favourite. I wore this to my works Christmas party (that’s how much blogging I have to catch up on) with some killer chunky black heels and tonnes of gold jewellery, looked pretty damned cool I’d say. Sausage Baby came with me and she wore a Santa outfit. She was the cutest baby in Shoreditch House that night, she was the only baby but still the cutest.

Please give this pattern a go and alter it and make it your own. You’ll love it!!

Happy sewing!!
