Paisley Cutout Mini Dress

Hello everyone,
So happy I finished my late #magamsewalong "Sew New Season" June dress, it supposed to finish last month but I couldn't because distracted with other urgent garments, holiday and other things. Besides, this dress was little bit complicated to work with, so I prefer to finish it slowly.

This dress has a special detail at the neckline yoke, straight-line cut, front darts, raglan sleeves and inseam pockets.
I had a big crush on this pattern as soon as I saw the magazine, the neckline detail is so pretty and the rest of the dress is so simple and airy. Perfect to wear in hot summer day 😍

For the fabric, I used 2 yards of printed paisley cotton that I bought for muslin but I think it is too pretty for muslin. So, I used it and put the muslin fabric on the list to buy next time.

The pattern, I used BurdaStyle Cutout Mini Dress 04/2017 size 36 and didn't make adjustment on the fit of the pattern except shorten the length 4 cm.
Also, one thing I changed, I used bias tape from the same fabric for the loops instead of follow the original pattern instruction.

DIY Necktie

As promised in the previous post, here is "diy necktie" that I made especially for DH. The idea came up last year when I bought the fabric, DH said could be great if I bought more fabric enough for my dress and matching tie for him. So, I bought three yards instead of two.

For the pattern, I used his old tie for a base and follow the tutorial from purl soho - thanks Molly for the clear tutorial 😊

First thing I carefully took out the stitches from the old tie, iron it and copied as the pattern. I decided to keep the front and back linings in white fabric as shown in the picture below.
I was amazed with the amount of pieces to make a tie, eight pieces in total, also needed fusible interfacing for the front, middle and back fabric.

Asymmetrical Neckline Dress

Hello everyone,
I am back after a long silence, once again busy life and low mood for blogging but I've been so active in Instagram and made some garments that I am excited to share with you.
This asymmetrical neckline dress is one of the garments, I made it especially to wear in my dear niece wedding in London few weeks ago. It was a great wedding, both bride and groom were gorgeous, she looked so radiant and beautiful 💖💖

Back to the dress, I used the especial printed cotton linen that I bought in my trip to Singapore last year. I had three yards, I used 2.25 yards for this dress and used the leftover to make a matching necktie for dear husband. I will post the necktie separately after this.
