Origami CAP SLEEVE dress
The dress I am going to show you today has been cut almost a year ago. For some reason I interrupted the project, I put it aside and forgot it completely. I recently found and finished it. And, hopefully, it is not too small!
It´s made of blue Corduroy fabric and contrasting pink poplin lining. I used the Cap sleeve pattern from Ottobre design 6/2013.
I modified the back part of the dress as I really wanted to put an exposed zipper, not an invisible one.
free tutorial by Les lubies de Louise. There is the link to her pdf tutorial. It´s in French but it´s quite clear oven for those not speaking French, it´s a step-by-step tutorial full of pictures. It´s easy to follow, really.
I put two faux pocket flaps on the front as planned according the pattern. There are lined with the same pink poplin as the rest of the dress.
I cut some pieces of the dress in the wrong direction! That´s why some parts seem to be of a slightly different colour... Then I reversed the steps - I was so concentrated on the zipper that I did not really think about the order of the steps... So I ended up with a nice zipper but in the next step I realised I could not turn the dress when needed, because the zipper was already installed... Well, really really a shame!
However, I finally finished it!
I think my princess is happy with the dress and so am I.
C U soon and
