I discovered this free pattern of dress Dolce from Maunamé by chance while surfing the internet. I was looking for a romantic model, with an elastic waistband to use a pink and black dot viscose that I had in stock. I don’t know about you, but I generally start from a model and then look for the right fabric, and not vice versa, except if I am falling in love at first sight for a particular fabric, which oh my! It happens quite frequently in reality! But I promised myself to be less impulsive now, to buy more carefully. Before starting sewing, I didn’t buy a dress every month! Other than slow fashion! Sometimes I have the impression of consuming more! Do you have ever had this feeling?
But now, returning to the pattern, the substantial change I made was the lining which was not originally included, but the fabric seemed a little transparent to me.
The sleeves seemed a bit too long but I just made a double hem of 2 cm instead of 1 cm + 2 cm and the length was perfect to create the balloon effect.
