Lekala #5194 custom fit sewing pattern.
In a black and white gingham with the flounce she had denied me sewing on...
I adore the flounce and was determined to sew it.
The gingham is a silky cotton from Eliza's of Sunshine, $2/m. It was marked cotton but I was dubious as it has a lovely sheen, however, it ironed on linen so cotton it is.
Sorry to doubt you Mr Eliza.
I added a hem ruffle (with a narrow hem) as I felt like it needed a little something.
I would love to stay I changed the straps as a design feature but I simply forgot. (I was able to check the length on Elsa, twins are handy things)
I think we have a tried and true pattern for Zara.
I do like it with her red hair.
'I interrupted her study and made her take some photo's'
Zara requested another in a crisp cotton shirting.
The nice long back darts help me get a great fit.
I did sew a wee popper to hold the bust wraps together.
Absolutely stunning dresses.
Easy to dress up and down. I adore them, so, so much.
I do feel so grown up and mature when I wear them.
Thank you Mum.
And just in case you forgot how gorgeous she looked...
