[Me-Made-May 13] day 22

Me-Made-Months, Sewing for grown-ups / Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

I’m late in posting this! Yesterday we had a little bit of sun (though the temperatures were still very low) and I thought it would be time to wear this dress – I haven’t been able to wear it since I finished it two weeks ago.. The pattern comes from Ottobre magazine issue 2 of 2013 and it’s number 19. Once again I have made no maternity adjustments, only used my bust size to determine whiche  size to cut. Thanks to the knit fabric, it’s stretchy enough to cover my belly! Apart from the front knotted piece which gave me a little headache, the construction was fine. I must say though that my serger did not enjoy the side seams: there’s a knit band creating a kind of belt, and it’s gathered, so the whole thing is really thick. I had to stop serging before the belt and start again afterwards – and use a simple zigzag stitch over the belt part. Bonus: my husband really likes it, which is very unusual – he rarely comments on what I make 🙂
