Hi again everyone!
Gawsh! These Thursday Thread postings come around so quickly… I love it!
So, last week I posted about another handmade bodice I made which I attached a silk sari skirt using MAKE IT EASY: Mix and match pattern wardrobe and sewing guide. No. 25
I loved the fit so much I decided to make another one.
When I find a pattern that fits and that I love, you can guarantee I will make it over a few times (just a heads up – you may notice the themes!)
With my most recent bodice, I decided I really wanted a stretch material so I used a denim stretch you see here.
(The last bodice was made from was a cotton non-stretch so you may have noticed I elasticised the back to keep it fitted)
There was something I did a bit differently with this dress – I used 100% recycled materials. The bodice was made from an old pair of jeans that a girlfriend gave me, and the skirt came to me as a bed sheet in an op-shop!
I often sew at night and will rummage through my wardrobe to find the material that I want. If I don’t wear that item? I chop it up!
Waste not want not!
