Blue Dress 2

I know that I’ve just started another sewing project but my grandmother’s dress will have to wait a little because I realised that I really need something to wear for my little cousins baptism next weekend. I bought the dress you can see in the picture above and I’ve worn it much but the material is so thin, the dress has started to unravel from the seams. I love the shape though (even though it looks a little frumpy on the hanger) and so I’m planning on cutting it apart at the seams, copying the pattern and then making a new version of it. I already bought 3,5 m of the most gorgeous dark blue jersey as material. Blue Dress 1

Keep your fingers crossed for me, this must be the most complicated stretchy dress I have ever made and I only have a few days. If it doesn’t work, I might have to do an emergency shopping trip on Wednesday before I’m off to Hamburg for a few days.


  1. Ohh how interesting. Can't wait to hear how it turns out! I have a dress that I love which needs to be replaced. I'm going to wait to see how the process of copying an existing dress works for you and maybe attempt mine!

    1. I'll let you know how I'm getting on. So far it seems to be okay but I do have to admitt that the stretchy fabric is quite forgiving as far as slightly screwing up the pattern goes.
