2018 Last Makes

Half January is already gone so, it’s about time I finish sharing the clothes I made in 2018. These two dresses, I made for the girls to wear on New Year’s Day.

To wear on the first day of the year, M requested a dress with a peter pan collar and although I own a few patterns that could fulfil her request, I was running out of time (you know how busy this time of the year is, right?) and the Maria blouse pattern was sitting right next to me.

Susana from Suco by Susana recently made the Maria Blouse as a dress for her girl and has a tutorial on how to do it on her blog. However, I made it a little different and used the same width as the pattern piece for the skirt. That means, I only added length.

I made a size 8, without any modifications, apart from the obvious one.

For F, I used the Marlow dress by Jilly Atlanta with the recently released long sleeve extension. I’ve made this dress before and both F and I really like it.

I made a size 8 for length with size 6x for width, with the knee length option. This is a lovely pattern, with its front bodice ruffles. I thought the ruffles might get a bit “lost” in the print, so added lace in contrasting colour and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. Also, it matches the socks and hair bows… details, I know, but that is one of the fun parts of making clothes!

The fabric used for both dresses is a viyella, bought in a Portuguese kids’ clothes brand stock off. Thank you to my dear friends who remembered me and got me some wonderful fabric that day 😊

It is now about time I stop with last year’s makes and start with 2019 ones instead.
