Thank you very much for all the lovely comments on My Sabrina Dress. They are truly appreciated and I love reading them!
As I probably mentioned before, I will wear My Sabrina Dress at an upcoming friend's wedding. My plan was to do a bolero (in case it gets a bit cold at night), a clutch, a fabric belt and possibly some fabric shoes redo all on the same complementing fabric. My choice was a dark green taffetta.
I have slipstitch lining opening and sleeves this morning. First time working with taffetta and I quite enjoyed it. I used view A of Butterick 3345 and ignored the ruffle. I'm quite pleased with the result but failed at taking a decent sneak pic so you will have to wait till after the weeding to see some photos.
I had plans to make the clutch bag in the same fabric as the bolero but stumbled upon the most gorgeous clutch on ebay and couldn't resist. Isn't it gorgeous?
I have ditched this idea after trying on the dress with the bolero. I think I will make that area too busy (if that makes sense).
Self fabric shoes: Well, I waited too long to experiment with this and have to say taffetta was not the best choice. I decided to do a shopping trawl to see if I could find some nice green shoes but no luck. Blue is in season. Light green and khaki is in season but dark green isn't. I settled for some wedges (I looove wedges) and will try to decorate them with maybe a green bow or flower. Ideas and suggestions on this are more than welcome.
I have sent a request to join the brilliant community blog Sew Retro. Been an avid reader for long and now that I completed a dress out of an original vintage pattern I feel I can belong there.
