Although we’re still in full winter weather, I can’t stop thinking about summer. The thing is, despite finding winter very beautiful (especially in photos), it’s not my favourite season and after Christmas I’m ready to move on to Spring. So, it is only natural that I start sewing for summer while we are still having snow, right?
M was the lucky recipient of my first summer sewing! Diorella from Bebekins is releasing new patterns and I got to test them. The first one, the Stella Dress and Top, was released today and is a lovely and timeless pattern. The kind of dress that goes well in every girl’s wardrobe.
The Stella Dress and Top has a high yoke and ruffle sleeves that gives it a sweet look and is available from sizes 1 year up to 10 years.
I find the style of this dress truly adorable but I don’t think I need to tell you that my favourite part are the ruffle sleeves, do I? 😉 Not that the dress needed, but I added a cotton trim to the sleeve. Can’t resist adding some details!
The fabric I used is a poplin (or very similar) from Mike Tecidos’ last year collection and I already used it before in here. I really like this print and colour!
For M, I made a size 7 for height with a size 5 for width and I’m happy with the fit. I’m sure she will wear it a lot during summer (already dreaming…).
