Spring-summer sewing: Eléonore’s projects
After Camille’s projects last week, today it’s my turn to talk about what I’d like to sew for the spring-summer 2017 season! With a little twist, because I’m going to have to adapt some of my wardrobe this year.
I’m expecting a happy event in the fall, which means I’m going to have to take my baby bump into account when planning my sewing. My goal is to create a few simple pieces that I can wear in the heat this summer and sew up quickly! This was the perfect occasion to try out my Colette Patterns Sewing Planner.
I’m planning to wear it with a knee-length bodycon dress in striped jersey (self drafted pattern), which will be a perfect transition piece from spring to summer (with or without thights or a cardigan). I’m also going to use this pattern to sew a couple tank tops for the warmer months of the year!
To deal with the heat in the south of France, I chose the famous Aubépine dress, which I’ll make as a pregnancy dress in a lightweight chambray! I’m thinking about lengthening it a little, and not lining it so it’ll be even lighter.
Have you ever had to hack a Deer&Doe pattern to adapt it to your body? What are your favorite adjustments?
