Completed project: Slouchy autumn berries dress

Here we are. It was a bit weird putting tights on, on such a lovely day. But in the interests of complete transparency (which this blog is all  about ) I dutifully got the opaques out and the husband inside and got to work. So here’s the Slouchy Autumn Berries Dress (pattern is HP 1090) – on a real live  person.

Truth be told I was a bit worried about this dress. I wasn’t sure it was really me – I was concerned it might look too staid and a bit yummy mummy. But I think as long as I give it a bit of attitooood then I might be alright!

Next up – I’m going to finish the Frankenstein Polkadot this week if it kills me  and then I’m going to cut out for my first Colette Beignet. I’m extremely excited about this skirt! Does anyone know of a good sewalong for the Beignet? I’ve been googling but haven’t found one. I’ve also ordered the Rooibos Dress  pattern from Colette Patterns – hooray! I think I’ll be too late to do the sewalong but it will all be there for great reference once I’m ready. Plus I can be  a bit of a cheat and watch everyone else before I select my fabric – it’s a win-win!

  1. It’s lovely! Very good with the tights too. I don’t think you’ll need a sewalong for the Beignet – it’s pretty simple and extremely easy to fit (I’ve made three now). What fabric are you going to make it in?

  2. Ta Tilly! I’ve got a really light blue denim that’s quite thin (I’m hoping for a Stella McCartney feel) plus a thicker indigo denim for another version. Can I just say thank you so much for making me your blog crush? It’s so awesome! I just saw it and my husband had to tell me to take a minute and calm down – I was literally bouncing around on the sofa! How dare he be so relaxed (although he is wearing a facemask and looks a bit like American Psycho right now) – it’s fabulous news! Thank you so much 🙂
