As if I didn’t already have enough dresses in my closet, I had to sew myself a new one. For my Twisted Dress here I have used up the rest of a stretch velvet and am already a little sad not to have more of it. Mom would’ve loved to get one as a shirt with this fabric too.
I’ve learned with the fabric here, however: You should stick to your own fabric specifications when testing and sewing patterns! The stretch velvet is no 4-way stretch as you should use for the twisted dress and even if it still looks quite good, so I guess I shouldn’t eat quite so much.
In addition, the dress is a little shorter in length than planned. The advantage of this: The pattern now contains two versions for the knot, once at waist level and once under the chest as in the dress here. This came about because it slides up due to the lack of length elasticity here and my sample sewing girls also found this look quite great. Since we could not decide which is better, there are now simply both.
The sample sewing of the Twisted Dress was brilliant, I think I’ve never had so many girls and that even though I could not take quite a few applicants. Well, the selection of sewn and photographed dresses shows a true love for the pattern. It is incredibly versatile and can now be sewn not only as a dress but also as a shirt or maxidress. I have hardly kept up to look at all the pretty pieces made by the girls <3
Of course there is a sale for the Twisted Dress in the first days as always. So go for the fabric, pay attention to the recommendation (!) and then the Twisted Dress is sewn in no time. The knot is super easy and quick to make 😉
