Mimmi dress from Ottobre design 1/2016.

Stretch cotton fabric from Tallinn and what became of it (part 2)

Funny how sometimes a pattern magazine manages to exceed all expectations. Ottobre design 1/2016 is a magazine that has a loose cover for so much use. The patterns are quite simple and perfect for different patterned fabrics and can be easily modified. The last blog post contained a pair of trousers from the afore mentioned magazine and this time I have made a dress number 14 called Mimmi.

This pattern is an a-line dress with pockets and a lovely boat-shaped neckline. I modified the pattern by removing the need for the center-back zipper by inserting a keyhole opening and a button closure.  This makes it easier for S to dress herself and for me to sew the dress!

S particularly likes the pattern of the fabric and the fact that the fabric doesn’t wrinkle much. She says she doesn’t want to wait for mum to iron the dress. The mum in question (that’s me!) is also happy to do less ironing!
