Classic blue dress
Summer is coming.
The days warm up and we can start to eat some icecream. Oh, how I will miss italian gelato! I think italy has the best icecream I've ever eaten.
In the mornings the air is still fresh, but during a sunny day it really warms up. The sun on the skin feels so good, its like to fill up a empty tank with new energy. This spring was very rainy and the rain for me is like the sky that weeps. This sometimes brings me in a mood that I dosen't like at all. I then try to make it cozy inside our home, light candles, drinking warm coffee or tea and cuddle with a blanket on the sofa.
But now, summer is calling. The beginning of summer is like dancing barefoot in the grass, feeling the little stones under the feet, picking flowers and dipping your toes in the water of a still cold lake!
I sewed this dress this week, I fall in love with this soft blue and bought this leightweight fabric as a scratch on the market here in italy.
It's a pattern out of the ottobre magazine autumn / winter 2012, I simply made it sleeveless and mixed up a little the patterns ( Modell 14 and 15). I was inspired by Halitha who made a very beautiful version of this dress with dots in a lovely fabric.
The zipper I moved to the side and cutted the back in one piece, unfortunatly I didn't had a zipper in the perfect color, but I'm okay with that.
I'm really in the mood to sew a little and have lots of things to wear in the planning!
What all the others on this wednesday are wearing you can come and see here on the me made mittwoch side! Lots of inspiration and gently folks over there!
