In the Garden: V9021

New floral dress - quickly, out to the garden with you!

There are probably two things that will strike you about this dress:

1. the fabric, and  
2. the shoulders.

First off, the fabric. 

This stuff is a stretch cotton, referred to on the internet by a few people who've used it as THE fabric of the year. For 2013, that is!  I bought it on impulse and without a plan in late 2013 from Tessuti fabrics, and then I loved it so much I couldn't decide what to make with it - I'd only really bought enough (1.6 metres) for one garment, you see. Meanwhile, Rachel made a Belladone dress, Kirsty made a Tokyo jacket and an O'Keefe skirt, Debbie made a Rigel bomber, and the fabric soon sold out. And finally I made my mind up in early 2015...

And then the shoulders. 

I spend a lot of time taking patterns out of my filing cabinet, staring at them, and choosing "the next ones to make", which then face me from behind my sewing machine, ready to go. There's an 80s pattern that was sitting behind my machine for ages, and it's got a similar wide-shouldered, straight-skirted look to this one. A couple of weeks ago I decided to start on it, and I flipped over the pattern envelope to see how much fabric and what notions it needed. To my horror I discovered it used those ginormous, thick shoulder pads that were around in the 80s - the sort you sometimes come across in second hand stores, no longer available in fabric shops.  I have tried using big shoulder pads before, but when you start off with narrow shoulders, it's hard to place enormous shoulder pads without them hitting your neckline - so the 80s pattern was retired to the filing cabinet. 

Enter Vogue 9021: the same basic silhouette - big shoulders, narrow skirt - but with no shoulder pads. It's described as "Fitted dress has front and back extending into sleeves, low armholes, back zipper and hemline split."  This is what it's intended to look like, and here's the tech drawing too:

The pattern isn't recommended for stretch fabrics but obviously I've made it in a stretch woven and I think it's perfectly fine - my fabric and fit choices did impact the sizing though, as I ended up taking the side seams in by one to two sizes (down to about a 10 or 12 from the 14 I cut out). This does make for a very fitted dress, which you probably wouldn't want if the fabric weren't a stretch, but in such a non-drapey fabric the dress just looked too big in my usual size.

I have to say I think the dress would look very different in, say, a thin, drapey silk - I doubt there'd be as much shoulder enhancement, and you'd want the dress to fall in folds and drapes rather than cling! You can see the dress made from this pattern by Adrienne in a poly blend over here - and she also shows you a very similar dress sold by Saint Laurent :).

I really like the way this dress has turned out, but if you're thinking of making the pattern, I have a couple of cautions...

The back split is kind of high, and it's finished in the "Easy" way. I folded mine differently so there's some overlap between the two sides, and stitched down the top of the fold as you would the split in a denim skirt, say. This just strengthens the split a bit, and reduces the likelihood of the split travelling up any higher under stress. 

And the side view can give you a lot of side bra... You could obviously wear a tank top or a slip underneath - or just a regular bra that you're prepared to share with friends and passersby.  My daughter says, "what's so rude about seeing underwear?" but I'm still undecided on that one... 

Along with that side bra issue, also comes the fact that the inside of your fabric and sleeve facing are going to be visible. I just serged the edge of my sleeve facings before top stitching, but if I'd thought this through better I would have turned them under and pressed them before top stitching. And my fabric is a plain white on the wrong side - the floral is just a print, not woven into the fabric. I think if I make this again I'll fully line the bodice with something that complements the outer fabric, and I'll skip the sleeve facings entirely. 

I should mention the fit of this dress too!

When I sew dresses, I tend to sew shoulder seams, then attach skirt pieces to front and back, and then baste the side seams and centre back to check the fit. This dress shape looks very simple, but the bodice fit didn't work for me straight out of the envelope. Initially I had a lot of excess fabric above and to the sides of my bust; this might have been alright in a drapey fabric but just looked like poor fit in this stretch cotton. I'm sure this is an unorthodox approach, but to remove the excess fabric I decided I needed to create more tension between waist and shoulder. Originally the shoulder line was quite curved; I altered this to a straight line from neckline (where the length to my waist seemed OK) to the start of the sleeve facings.

This unusual alteration seemed to take me down a couple of sizes over the bust as it reduced the distance from shoulder to waist (ie if you have a small bust, you need a smaller length of fabric to go from shoulder to waist) - you wouldn't need to do this if you had either strong shoulders or a larger bust.  I also had to take the bodice in a couple of sizes at the (very short) side bodice seams.  Based on this experience, I'd recommend not cutting out the sleeve facings (if you want to use facings rather than lining) until you've got the fit worked out. Hmm - isn't that what muslins are for?

And I should mention the metrage and dress length, right?

Vogue says you'll need 1.8 m of 150 cm wide fabric or 2.7 m of 115 cm wide fabric for a size 14 (the size I originally cut) in the longer version, view B, of this dress - assuming direction or nap aren't considerations.  I only had 1.6 metres of 130 cm wide fabric, and I really wanted the longer, midi length dress rather than the knee length (view A) version, but I found I had enough fabric to add about 5 cm to the dress length IF I cut my sleeve facings from a coordinating stretch cotton - I think this would have ended up only just below knee length otherwise at the standard longer length, and FYI I'm around 5'8".  To try to maximise the length and minimise hem bulk I then also used a stretch lace to bind the hem, hand stitched in place:

The pattern recommends using a regular zip with a hook and eye, but I just used an invisible zip - I love invisible zips, and I don't tend to get any strain at the top of dress zips. I got the seams nicely aligned, but as you can see I didn't even attempt any print matching - there was no fabric to spare for print matching!


My conclusion is that this is a simple but lovely silhouette, and one that to me is reminiscent of both 30s and some 60s dress shapes. It's definitely not an everyday dress - I won't be hanging out in it on weekends, but maybe it'll work for a party or frocktails,  I really like pretending to have bigger shoulders, and the wiggle factor is fun :)

Thanks for reading, and see you soon!

Picnic Dress Gabby

We seem to be experiencing another summer heatwave here in Sydney - and these things seem to be coming more regularly - so yesterday, when I noticed myself pulling out my Starry, Starry Gabby to wear yet again, it felt like the right time for whipping up another Gabby dress.

Ah, but what fabric to use? I'm trying to sew from my stash, so I looked around the sewing area of the study and noticed this fabric I'd bought to make my son a short sleeved shirt using a cool vintage pattern (see? not entirely selfish!).

Hmmm... Maybe not really his style? I asked him what he thought, he thought definitely not. Within about 5 seconds of that rejection, the fabric was on the ground and the Gabby pattern pieces were strewn about :).  I wish I could tell you the fabric was a cool 100% cotton or linen, but sadly it's just a cheap poly-cotton from Lincraft - I simply fell for the oversized checks.

Speaking of oversized checks, there seem to be lots of wonderful gingham garments around but THIS Celestial dress of Rosie's is the one that fired up my imagination most recently.  I absolutely love both Rosie's dress and the bucketload of inspiration pictures she's posted alongside it.

Oh and I should mention that when I posted a picture of this dress to Instagram shortly after finishing it, Carolyn commented that she was just finishing off a very similar dress - so look out for Carolyn's gingham dress on her blog VERY soon (I'm already expecting to prefer hers to mine!)

I'm sure the Gabby is not the perfect summer dress for everyone, but it really works for me, and now I've made it a few times (the Starry onethis one in a stretch, and another recent, unblogged dress in a heavy Nani Iron cotton) it comes together ridiculously fast - so this dress was all done in a day, in between chatting with the kids and feeding them. As I've made and blogged it before and it's such a straightforward dress, I won't review the pattern itself and instead I'll just list the changes I made this time around:

  • Lengthened the sleeves about 2cm.
  • Added 16cm length all around, then removed 16cm length after the dress was all done bar the hems, then noticed it was a bit short (I'm about 5'8"), so left an overlocked edge instead of a hem.
  • Added in-seam pockets, the size based on putting my hand down on the fabric, and position based on trying on the partially sewn dresss and pinning the top and bottom of a space where my hand naturally wanted to slide into a pocket. I didn't have enough fabric to be able to pattern match pockets to the dress, but the pocket pieces match each other and are symmetric too. 
  • Added bust darts to assist in matching up the checks on the side seams and because that little bit of excess length in the front edges looked like the right amount for a bust dart.

Spot the bust darts! Oh and btw, the front has moved off centre in this picture. 

Pattern matching and in-seam pockets

That's all, but I'll be back soon with the Nani Iro version and a dress in the fabric of the year (ah, but which year?).

See you soon

The Painterly Dress

Skipping past a couple of unblogged 2014 makes for now, here's my first dress of 2015:

the painterly dress! 

Front view, painterly dress
Isn't this fabric pretty? I think it looks so painterly, if that's the correct word - it reminds me of flowers and reflections in puddles, and impressionism! 

Polyester twill from The Fabric Store
The fabric is a medium weight twill from The Fabric Store in Sydney, and I suspect probably made from 100% polyester - whatever it is, it was tricky to sew! My serger adored the fabric, but I had a lot of trouble getting the tension right with the fabric in my sewing machine, which is why the princess seams are rippling. I'd sorted out the tension by the time I sewed the skirt, so the skirt side seams are fine. The bodice also looks like it's pulling so I guess for a fabric with zero give I should have allowed myself more room. I do realise I could have unpicked and resewn the bodice with a little more room and with the improved tension settings, but when I unpicked a small area to try to do just that I discovered the old needle holes remained very visible on the fabric, and I only had miniscule scraps of fabric left over, so I decided to chill and put up with a bit of rippling and pulling.

And the dress pattern? Well it isn't really one thing or another, it's the Libby A-line skirt from Tessuti patterns, which I've been meaning to try for ages, combined with princess seamed bodice from an old favourite of mine, DKNY pattern V1193.

I've made V1193 a couple of times now with sleeves (here in a red ponte, and here for my "Out of Darkness" dress), and used the bodice without sleeves at least once more (here for example in Pink Panther fabric for the Sew Dolly Clackett challenge), so I pretty much know by heart how to make it fit me properly. On this occasion I used the same minor adjustments as usual (essentially I use several sizes - size 10 for the shoulders, size 12 at the bust, size 14 at the waist).  I initially added length to the whole bodice but then ended up removing a wedge of fabric at the back for what is apparently not so much a sway back as a short back (thank you Lara for reminding me about Beth's post on that adjustment!). In the photo below it looks like the back is still a bit long, but I had my shoulders back for these photos, and usually when my posture is not so good I need that little extra back length.

Shortened back bodice
There are lots of pure Libby skirts on the internet (see Jillian, Rachel, and Elizabeth, for example) and if you want to see this fabric sewn up differently, check out Emma's Simplicity pencil skirt.

I cut this Libby skirt in a size 14, and then found I could trim about an inch from the sides when I attached the skirt front and back to the bodice front and back - the skirt was a lot wider than the bodice - so I guess I had mismeasured myself. Anyway, it was super easy to attach the Libby skirt to the Vogue bodice, and I only wish I'd got the skirt size right in the first place because I suspect if I had, the skirt darts might have lined up with the princess seams! Anyway, the darts are completely lost in the print, so that's just something I'll bear in mind for any future Libby + Vogue makes.

I would have liked a deep hem on this dress but the skirt was shorter than I anticipated, so I finished the hem with some coordinating satin bias binding, machine stitched in place.  It would've looked better with a hand stitched hem, but the bodice is all sorts of imperfect anyway, so it didn't seem worthwhile!

Hem finish - satin bias binding
The bodice is fully lined in a nice satin that I picked up second hand ages ago.  I sewed the lining with a bit of extra width, but it's proved unnecessary given how little the outer fabric moves. The lining is understitched around the neckline, and handstitched in place down the zipper tape and around the waist.

A bit of hand stitching
What else? Well there's an invisible zip in the size seam, and although I've got more of that annoying rippling happening in the seams, at least it's consistent front and back - my seams aligned nicely at the waist and the zip is nearly invisible!

Side view with invisible zip in the side seam
Close up of the invisible zipper in the skirt section
Over on the other side of the world I know plenty of sewists are looking forward to Spring, but with this dress I feel like I'm only just kicking into Summer gear - Summer, you've GOT to stay a bit longer! 

See you soon

Broderie Anglaise V-Neck

You'd be excused for assuming I don't learn from my mistakes...

In late November I blogged a boxy cropped hibiscus print top, and I think most of you agreed with me that it was a bit of a dog. The fabric itself was fine, the shape of the top was interesting, but the combination of fabric and shape wasn't that great, and it just looked "off" on me. Bearing all that in mind, yes, I've made another of those boxy tops!

The thing is, I made this top around the same time as the first, and the hibiscus print top was only ever intended as a muslin for this one, the one that had drawn itself into my brain as a "must sew". By the time I'd photographed and judged the hibiscus version, number two was nearly done - I loved the look of these quieter fabrics together, so I just finished it up and here it is!

Interestingly, this one seems to look a LOT better on. Or is that just my imagination? Is it just that I much, much prefer these fabrics? The shape is exactly the same - the only change I made to the shape was to lengthen it a couple of centimetres through the body.

I'll let you compare the two versions for yourself - same shoes, different skirt, and nearly the same camera angle...

Hmm. It's not just my imagination.  Those couple of centimetres did wonders for my waist! 

OK, a couple more of these dodgy photos from the back - sorry, but I find photographing white clothes quite a challenge - and then I'll tell you about the fabric and show you some close ups of the top laid flat:

The broderie anglaise that's the main fabric for this top is a large leftover from a designer remnant that I originally used in the bodice of this dress (oh, I loved that dress!). The fabric came from The Fabric Store here in Sydney a couple of years back, but I think I've seen something similar there - albeit with a larger pattern - in the last few months.

Broderie anglaise having all those little holes in it, I thought I'd best underline the front bodice. For the underlining I used some cream coloured linen left over from this top (hmm, I didn't love this when I made it), and that linen is also used in the sleeve cuffs and in the neckline band. Leftover fabric scraps feel like they're free, don't they - the fabric costs have already been attributed to the projects that came before! - so I'm calling this 100% free fabric.

Here's a close up of the inside bodice, at a side seam so you can see the difference a layer of linen makes to the broderie anglaise. The extra layer of course makes the fabric more opaque, and a layer of linen is more pleasant than lining fabric when you're dealing with hot, sweaty summers....

As you may recall, the pattern is the one pictured below, a classic 80s shape if ever I saw one (trust me, I've seen quite a few up close).  It's supposed to be loose fitting, and waist length - check, check! You don't have to make it in a white fabric unless you want the look of that pattern envelope girl, though to really get the look you also need to invest in large plastic accessories.... Maybe next time?

And this cheap pattern is of course another sunk cost. Making it a free top, right?

Simplicity 6742, a classic 1980s outfit pattern
I said it last time, but I really like the way this V-neck is constructed! I know my close-ups in the hibiscus print were headache inducing, but I think the way it's been put together will be easier to see in this fabric.

The first of these next two views shows you the v-neck from the outside of the top (ie fabric right side), and the second view shows you the v-neck finish on the inside:

V-neck from the outside
V-neck construction, on the inside

Fitting and Pattern Adjustments
No fitting required with these loose, that-looks-too-big style of patterns :).

As I mentioned above, there was one change I made to this pattern that made a noticeable difference - I just lengthened it a few centimetres to around hip length. The other less striking change I made was to cut the v-neck pieces on the grain rather than on the bias, and this vastly improves on the original; version two of this top sits nicely on my shoulders :). So I did learn from the hibiscuses! 

Likes / Dislikes
As before, I really like this V-neck :). I love the shape of the top, and I think I'll be wearing it with this knee length skirt as well as with the slightly longer pink skirt blogged here. I suspect what makes it work so much better is that this top covers my waist - when a top cuts off at your waist, I guess that's where people's eyes are drawn!

There's still one annoying flaw with this top: those linen sleeve bands are creasing up like crazy! I did consider interfacing them as I was sewing this top up, and decided that interfacing would have made them too heavy. That may have been the wrong call :0.

Don't worry, it doesn't have to be perfect! 
OK, I think that's enough rambling about this one - there's one more 2014 top I want to blog soon, and after that we can talk about colourful 2015 dresses!

See you soon

Sunday, 11 January 2015


I was planning on doing one of those in-depth wrap-up posts, the kind that picks out the blogger's Top 5 and Bottom 5 for the year, ending with thoughtful conclusions and interesting resolutions BUT the New Year blitzed past and I realised I didn't have anything particularly interesting to say about 2014.  Sorry Gillian!

Instead I think I'll just summarise what I made last year, and revisit last year's resolutions. Knowing me I'll then start rabbiting on and this will turn into an ultra long post - we'll see, maybe it'll end up being a proper end-of-year post after all.

2014, Month by Month

In January I blogged a denim Grainline Moss Mini (I visited Indie land!), a rashie top for myself, and a vintage sundress for my daughter. I also went to an excellent pants fitting workshop (I didn't end up making the pants I'd fitted because my weight was fluctuating like crazy) and made some very basic resolutions. I'm hardly wearing the denim skirt (turns out I'm not a denim skirt person - that explains why I haven't owned one since I was a teenager) and I keep forgetting to wear the rashie, but my daughter's little dress gets a lot of wear.

January 2014 sewing - UpSewLate

In February I shared with you a button down shirt I made my dad for his birthday, a cool t-shirt, a self-drafted silk top, and a fully lined (!!!) doll's dress. Assuming my dad wears his shirt, all of these were pretty successful makes...

February 2014 sewing - UpsewLate

In March I blogged a couple of beautiful Vogue tops my mum made and donated to me and then another top I made for myself from the same pattern. The silk top my mum made is one I wear heaps (the black and white top on the left, below), but I don't wear the t-shirt (top right) she made from the same pattern very much. And I wear the pink silk top less often than the black and white one because it's just not as nicely made... On the social front, I met up in town with Kristy for blog photos and general sewing chat, which was lovely!

March 2014 sewing - UpSewLate

In April it looked like I wasn't doing much sewing - I sewed up an OTT Pink Panther dress for the Sew Dolly Clackett challenge (I don't wear the dress much, but more often than you might imagine - the fit is just spot on), and organised my wardrobe in preparation for Me Made May. I also sewed my daughter an extravagant sequinned silk chiffon and dupion silk dress for her cousins's bat mitzvah - a big success, but I didn't get around to blogging it...

April 2014 sewing - UpSewLate

In May I participated in my fourth Me Made May, and as usual there was heaps of inspiration from around the world, but the effort involved in documenting what I was wearing and participating in the Flickr and Instagram groups overwhelmed me - there were so many photos to look at! After sewing for several years I have plenty of me mades to choose from for both workdays and weekends, but this year I got the sense that the group's character had tilted towards newer sewists for whom wearing me made is a bigger challenge. That's fine, but that group shift combined with the effort it takes to participate are probably going to keep me joining in for 2015.

In June I blogged a dress I made from an amazing digital print ponti, and my entry to Tessuti's Jaywalk competition - an ill-considered shirtdress made using a vintage pattern. The ponti dress doesn't get worn too often because I feel self-conscious wearing something so fitted, and the Jaywalk dress doesn't get worn too often because the stretchy fabric is really too heavy for the style. I wouldn't call these failures though because I like them both very much!

June 2014 sewing - UpSewLate

In July I blogged a lot for me - 5 garments! There was the silver twist midi skirt (chambray and silver - looked good in the photos, but the silver is scratchy on the inside so I haven't really worn the skirt since), the Papercut pleated pants in denim (which I now like, but am now sure how to wear), a Danni dress in blue ponti which I wear for work and a striped Danni which I just don't wear due to the cling factor. And there were two fleece hoodies for my daughter which she has worn heaps!

July 2014 sewing - UpSewLate

August was one of those months where it didn't look like I was sewing much. I blogged a couple of self-drafted tops, and I like them both but only really wear the one (pictured on the right below) with the angled stripes.  The other (on the left) is really poorly made - no finishing on the insides - and feels too cropped. I also sewed myself a pair of swimmers, but I didn't particularly like them when I tried them on, so I made lots of changes to them (lowered the back into a deep curve, reduced the voluminous cups etc) and they now feel too skimpy on the bust unless I keep absolutely still - I feel like such an idiot! Anyway, those swimmers made a brief (geddit) appearance on Instagram, and won't be blogged any time soon.

August 2014 sewing - UpSewLate

And September? Well I went on a big overseas trip to Europe with my family from late August to early October, and there were 6.5 weeks where I was nowhere near a sewing machine... Luckily I'd whipped up a few things in August that I could blog in September, right?  In September I blogged about going to Paris (three pairs of kids' PJ pants, a Paris meetup and some fabric shopping with Busy Lizzie) and Spain (two pairs of swimmers for my daughter). My son wore the greenish PJs occasionally, and the blue ones only once, but my daughter wore her striped leggings constantly. The multicoloured swimmers have been worn heaps over the past months and are now starting to pill from their excessive use, but the cute blue and white swimmers were a bit snug so have only been worn a couple of times when the other swimmers were soaking wet.

September 2014 sewing - UpSewLate
About a third of the way through October we arrived back in Sydney, and returned to work and school. I hit the sewing machines hard - I think I made 4 tops within about a week of getting back - but didn't manage to blog anything! Apart from sewing like mad, I also went along to an awesome shibori workshop organised by Susan. Shibori is great fun, and it was terrific to meet up with old pals and make some new ones too :). I still haven't sewn my indigo-ed fabric though...

In November I was still sewing, and I blogged a couple of the things I'd made in October and earlier. I took part in Amanda's #bpsewvember on Instagram (go check it out if you haven't already - she had some great daily challenges), and caught up with Steff, Emma and Kristy in town for lunch.  I blogged a purple Burda top that ended up fitting my mum better than me, a stripey Burda top that I'm definitely keeping, a crazy bunnies cool t-shirt (yes, that's a keeper too), a boxy hibiscus-print top that looks terrible on (already donated to charity), and a pale pink midi skirt that I'm wearing lots despite a bit of a fitting blip on my backside.

November 2014 sewing - UpSewLate

Nearly there!

December was another productive month on the blog... I wrote about a StyleArc Philippa top, a Papercut Undercover hood and a Papercut Undercover hoodless top, a blue neoprene top from my dodgy "pattern", a vintage dress for my daughter, a sequinned Christmas dress for her, and a coral linen Eva dress. The Philippa top was a definite failure and quickly left the house, and the neoprene top would be a success were it not for the fabric pilling straight away (thank you Spotlight!), but the other clothes look to be successes so far. Because the weather in Sydney has been really muggy I haven't had the opportunity to wear the two Undercover tops, and I know the fit wasn't perfect but I think I'll be wearing these a lot when the weather cools down. My daughter is wearing her vintage pattern dress frequently, and loves her sequinned dress to bits and wears it whenever she can argue the case for sequins. And the coral Eva dress is my favourite garment of the year, and I'd like to wear it every day.  I guess December was a good month for sewing and blogging for me.

December 2014 sewing - UpSewLate

Throughout the year I think there were 5 garments I didn't get around to blogging: the swimsuit and the sequinned silk chiffon dress I mentioned already, a kimono sleeve jacket made to test a new pattern, a white broderie anglaise / linen boxy top, and a different boxy top made from one of the fabrics I bought in Paris - I'll try to blog these soon - and several started but unfinished garments (there are 3 or 4 unfinished dresses hanging off the door near where I'm typing this!). 


Thinking back on the year, I had thought it was all dresses and tops, and mostly Big 4 patterns, but here's how my blogged sewing for the year really breaks down:

Not only dresses and tops
A healthy mix of pattern companies
By mainstream I mean Burda and KwikSew - the bigger pattern companies that aren't included when I talk about the Big 4.  I'm ignoring company structures and who owns what though - each brand still looks to have its own designers and distinct aesthetic!

Vogue patterns are still my favourite for their fit and instructions, although it turns out they're not the company I used most this year:
Hmm.... that does surprise me!

Oh by the way, since we're doing some simple data analysis here, let me jump on a personal hobbyhorse and tell you why I'm using bar rather than pie charts.  I know pie charts look pretty, but they're actually not a clear way of representing data. This article is a good one if you want to understand why you should make the switch, but basically it boils down to playing to our strengths: our brains are good at comparing differences in location (eg data points) and good at comparing differences in length (eg bar lengths), but not good at comparing areas (eg bubble graphs) and not good at comparing angles (eg slices of a pie chart). 


My resolutions for 2014 were quite low key, but still a bit of a challenge. I was fine with "this is not a popularity contest" (well it isn't for me), but the other two resolutions were hard. It's hard not to be drawn into whatever's popular, and I fell off the commenting wagon for a while when my Google login stuffed up. This year I want the same resolutions as last year, but I'm going to add one very special, extra hard resolution to the end of that list:

  1. It's a blog, not a popularity contest
  2. Dance to the beat of your own drum
  3. Be nice Be kind, honest, friendly and generous (edited after reading THIS post)
  4. Remember to write 2015

2015. 2015, 2015!!!! 

See you soon
