Suuri Käsityö 5/2018 Mekkohaalari – Dress romper

Harvoin käsityölehteä lukiessa tulee niin inspiroitunut olo, että kaava on piirrettävä ja ommeltava heti. Tämä Suuri Käsityö 5/2018 Mekkohaalari teki kuitenkin poikkeuksen, sillä toukokuussa alkaneet helteet aiheuttivat meillä kotona akuutin kesävaatepulan. Liikunnalliselle nuorelle neidille mekko-shortsihaalariyhdistelmä on yliveto…

1940s tea dress by Sew Over It

I got this fabric from Artenio at the same time with the mustard yellow one for this Amelia dress. It took me quite some time to decide on the pattern. I did not have a lot of fabric so many dresses with their circle skirts were unfortunately out of question…
