STYLISH PARTY DRESSES . TAKE 2

Day three of the London Sew Social / Tuttle Publishing blog tour! Today I am joined by the lovely Victoria and she is sharing a super cute pinafore from the book Happy Homemade: Sew Chic Kids while I am back to Stylish Party Dresses
PATTERN: View R (Georgette Two-piece Set) from Stylish Party Dresses. Despite the tittle, this book is definitely not only about dresses, though every single design is so stylish… This two-piece set is composed by a blouse and a skirt. I’ve sewn the blouse, I’ve been wearing it a lot with jeans and shorts and I think it looks pretty nice like this. I’ve sewn size 4 - even if my measurements advised me to sew a size 6 - to avoid too much ease (Japanese sewing pattern can have a LOT of ease!) I made no major changes to the original pattern but finished the sleeves with cuffs instead of elastic as I think it looks a little bit more polished this way. By the way, these sleeves have such a nice shape. Love them!

FABRIC: Printed rayon from my local shop (Feira dos Tecidos). I felt in love with this print the moment I saw it! I knew this super light weigh rayon would not be easy to sew but I had to have it! Plus I had seen this gorgeous tunic my friend Andreia made so I had no excuse… Cutting the fabric wasn’t that easy but sewing it was ok and I am so pleased with the final result! For the photoshoot I was wearing a white cami underneath as the fabric is slightly see-through and it looked not so nice on the photos but, in real life, the blouse is perfectly wearable by itself with a skin colored bra.

(A non decapitated photo for you, my dears! Yeah!)
Don’t forget to check Monday’s (Eva’s post here and my post here) and Tuesday’s (Ines’ post here and my post here) post for lots of Japanese inspiration! And feel free to come back tomorrow for more!
