Hey friends ❤
Before we start, let’s say goodbye to my very first try of this pattern… Although proudly announced on my Instagram account, sadly didn’t make it to the finish hem. Au revoir.
I made so many mistakes on that one- it was ridiculous. And don’t take me wrong, for the first few I was ready to turn a blind eye. But the last one was unignorable. So I decided to drag my defeated wallet to Hobby Lobby for a final stroke, get some new fabric and start again. I got two and a half yards of this beautiful cotton twill and two yards of this shinny poly satin for the lining. The buttons are from Walmart, of the subject- but did you see their new selection of sewing machines? Mmmmm nice.
The pattern that I used is Vikisews Noel (Ноэль). Stunning model: semi-fitted silhouette, single-breasted with welt pockets and double seam sleeves. There was only one problem: (aside of my Russian being nonexistent) I never made blazer before. Which means that the sewing process was long and painful- I had to do research on almost every part of it, awfully many How-To’s at my You Tube history… Nevertheless, I’m planning to make it again next month and definitely take pictures along the way, so stay tuned for that one if you would like to try it too <3
The dress is also made by me, my Full Moon dress- you can check the full post about it here.
I’m very very happy with how it turned out. It’s minimalistic, it’s versatile and it makes me feel more put together. Also, this is project no 1 from my 10-timeless-pieces-every-woman-should-own-list that I made last month. Ahhh I already feel accomplished!
Have a lovely day friends and see you soon! xoxo
