Februarsko - Martovsko izdanje Sew News magazina / February - March issue of the Sew News magazine

Pre neki dan sam dobila paket, a u njemu novi broj Sew News časopisa, i moja haljina. 
Članak opisuje kako da napravite kroj za klasičnu haljinu sa faltama na poprsju. Mislim da je haljina dodatno interesantna zbog smaragdno zelene boje, koja me oduševila. U pitanju je šantung svila, koju sam kupila sa popustom, pošto je ostalo samo jedno parče od oko 1.20 m dužine. Jedva sam uspela da iskrojim sve delove od tako malo materijala! 

A few days ago I received a package with a new issue of the Sew News magazine and my dress in it.
The article describes how to make a pattern for a classic shift dress with pleats on neckline. I think the dress is additionally interesting due to emerald color which fascinated me. It's shantung silk that I bought on a discount since it was a single leftover piece of approximately 1.20 m length. I barely managed to squeeze all the pieces on the fabric!


A evo kako haljina izgleda na meni. 

Here's how the dress looks on me.


Haljinu sam postavila lepim satenom u sličnim tonovima. Skoro da izgleda kao da ima dva lica.

I lined the dress with some nice satin in similar tones. It almost looks like the dress is double faced.

  1. I have to say this dress looks much better on you then in the magazine. You did a marvelous job and the color is simply glorious on you.

    Pleased that you found inspiration in the magazine, personally it left me flat and I am sorry I subscribed. Its really nice to see something positive come out of it.

    1. Hi Lynne, thanks for commenting. Unfortunately, I can't choose a model for my garments, and I think it's a pity that the dress isn't represented in all its glory. The girl modeling it is really pretty and cute, but the dress is too big for her. That's why I try to show a picture of the garment on me, since it was made according to my measurements.

  3. Like Lynne said, the dress looks so much better on you. Have you thought about making your own patterns and selling? You always design really nice outfits. Congratulations on getting another magazine feature.

    1. Hey Dibs, thanks to your excellent tutorial I enabled the thread comments, and now I exploit them as much as I can! ;)
      Oh yes, I've been thinking a LOT about starting my own pattern line. However, I still have to figure out how to solve some obstacles related to the local law that refers to selling online in foreign currency. It's way too complicated to describe it, but not being a part of the EU makes the business insanely complicated...

    I agree, you look much better in the dress than the model looks.
