The sun is back and is already warming up quite a bit for a few hours a day. This is so much more my season than the cold winter and so I had to use the great weather for fresh photos! The pictures were taken today shortly before noon and it was really very nice and warm. So no more freezing for good pictures 😉
After the test sewing is before the test sewing and even if I have already made a call for the Y dress last fall, there is now another one. Since it was already too late in autumn, we decided to wait until spring with the dress. In the meantime I sewed the different versions, took all instruction photos, optimized the pattern a little bit and look forward to a new round <3
The dress is made of slightly elastic woven fabrics such as this super soft stretch satin, which I got from Amy&Luke. It is also possible to sew the Y-Dress out of inelastic woven fabric but in a diagonal grainline. I only advise against knit fabric, because otherwise the dress can quickly fall out of shape. The name for the pattern is given by the position of the bust darts, these are directed towards the front centre and form a Y there.
With the narrow pencil skirt it looks like a very elegant shift dress, but the pattern also contains a wide cut skirt. For all those who don’t want it to be so tight 😉
Look how busy I was, the dress simply needed to be hemmed by hand, so that you can’t see a single stitch of it from the outside. It always looks so much better and it’s no big deal to make!
Luckily the ground was still frozen here, so I could stand quite well despite 12cm high heels… 😉 The dress pattern also has a second back, which is closed high. For all those who don’t dare to go out on the street without a bra under the dress or who are too insecure about adhesive cups. I will show you a dress with a wide skirt and a closed back soon.
But now it’s up to you, because my team is looking forward to some more testers:
- Please apply with whole sentences, a few nice words, your size and a link to your page. Simply leave a comment right here under this blog post, on my Instagram photo with this dress or in my Facebook group Sewera Sewing Bees.
- The pattern contains the sizes 32 – 50 and two separate front parts for A-C Cup or D+ Cup.
- The test sewers will be selected by the end of the week (22 February) and announced on Facebook/Instagram. Please only apply if you have a Facebook profile, otherwise the organisation will always be a bit difficult.
- Planned publication is 14 March, photo submission on 12 March. By then you should have sewn and photographed at least one dress (logical, right? 😉 ).
I hope that I can address a few of you with it and look forward to your applications!
