The Tiki-dress


Just like with the Gathering Summer Dress from a couple of weeks ago, the Sewing Lady and I met again for a nice day of practicing our hobby: sewing. I took a couple of sewing patterns with me and she choose one of Sewaholic patterns? I myself sticked to an oldie but goodie, this time. De fabric for this dress was perchased along with the fabric for the Gathering Summer Dress. From the moment I saw the fabric, I knew wich dress I wanted to make out of it.


A few years ago, I made my own version of this Danielle-pattern. One of the reasons I like this pattern so much, is the fact that I don't have to do any alterations to it. It just fits me like a glove straight from the package. The only adjustment I made, was altering the sleeves. No way I'm walking down the street wearing puffy sleeves, so I adjusted it to some capsleeves.


This is a superb pattern that I've made 4 times already (2 white versions and this tiki dress for myself and a white version for a friend of mine). So I guess I can call this an other TNT-pattern (Tried-And-True). A basic pattern I know I can rely on and is awesome :-)


Oh, and have you notices how perfect that zipper went in? I really love the hidden zipper foot my Significant Other gave to me as a present. Best gift ever!


Enjoy your summer!
