Ho Ho Ho!! I know it’s a bit late but I have the Christmas edition of my Sew Your Own Wardrobe series ready kids! Obviously since it’s December, what better thing to make that a snazzy Christmas dress! Back in November (I think) the By Hand London girls released their new pattern, the Kim dress and I pre-ordered it right away! I’m a sucker for a tulip wrap skirt.
I actually liked the pattern so much that I was more than happy to invest in the beautifully packaged, printed version instead of the usual PDF nonsense. The issue is now that I decided to trace my size instead of cutting directly into the pattern so I still found myself taping bits of paper together. Sake.
Anyway I’ve been pondering what kind of fabric to make this in for A WHILE, and finally I decided on some Blackwatch tartan from one of my favourite fabric haunts, Fabric Bazaar.
I’m planning to make variation 1 and I’ve already cut out the pieces to make a muslin. I can already tell I’m going to have to do a full bust adjustment so if anyone out there can point me in the right direction of how to do one on this particular bodice, I would be eternally grateful! Wish me luck 🙂
