Who doesn’t love dressing up for a wedding. I always prefer to be overdressed than basic. Blame years of following the Brazilian’s party dress code. It’s all very exciting. For my participation I’m leading the sew-along for Simplicity 8292.
The pattern is very flattering with princess seams and an empire line. A selection of sleeves and skirts offer numerous options. I have seen some versions where the waist is dropped to a natural position which I liked a lot.
My inspirations are actually wedding dresses. I know, big faux pax trying to obfuscate the bride but since this sew along it’s just for fun, why not? I’m not committing to actually make a wedding dress although I’m so tempted. Lace is a fabric I wish to sew more. I just don’t have an occasion. YET. Anyone fancy’s a dress up breakfast in London?

Next week we talk about fitting. I’m still in Brazil recovering from back surgery. I won’t be sewing my project until my return in 10 days ( recovery is not always that simple. I already had my plane ticket changed once) but I will write my top tips to help you fit yourself. Don’t worry. Loads of fun content to keep you entertained.
Im part of the sew along Facebook Group and everyone is welcome to join. Even if you plan to sew a different pattern from the official list. What matters it’s that we all have beautiful new outfits. Yes, trousers aren’t traditional but I think they are very chic. May I be hinting I wish to transform this dress into a jumpsuit? You will have to keep following to find out.
