Sew Weekly: Coco Chanel

Yay Hooray! My first week doing The Sew Weekly challenge, and my completed garment in on Mena's blog and here are some photos for you! I chose this Style Pattern, from 1991, but I wanted to make it a gorgeous LBD with a twist! What do you think?


Look how cute Doggie Darling is! I made it from this pattern:


I'm typing from my iPhone today, as we're heading down to the countryside and MAYBE going swimming! It's the craziest weather here in Melbs so not really sure what'll be on the cards for us!


It wasn't a tricky pattern to sew up, just lots of handstitching and ironing. I was slightly stressed because I had to cut it quite short to fit the fabric remnant, so lucky the hemline isn't too shocking!

  8. Fabulous. It looks totally now, even futuristic, even though the pattern was from the 90's.

  13. This dress looks absolutely gorgeous! So simple but yet so elegant. What does the back of this dress look like. Does it have white too or is it all black?
