There is always a style that we do it over and over again. For me is the wrap dress!And I have a clear favourite pattern making 3 versions already… this very own remaind unblogged (NL6097). I finished as a possible outfit for London Meet up but realised it was exactly the same pattern I used for the same meeting the year before. Talk about a TNT pattern I feel confident in.
This one I use elastic on the wrap hem as a stabiliser/ A small security measure as I like to put my bag across my body and neckline can be dragged. Did the same with the pockets so they don’t sag with time.
The fabric was from the stash. So soft and delicious… My favourite colours.
I worn this dress quite a lot since I made it.
When you make a pattern a few times there is nothing really to add about construction or fit.
So, let’s talk about what makes a pattern a favourite. For me, the basic pattern shape is flattering, even when I eat the whole tub of Feijoada. It offers numerous variations with a few changes. Works for both print and solid fabric.
And it has pockets! An outfit is incomplete without it.
What makes a garment/pattern a true tried and tested?
