After yesterday’s release of our new Astrid Sundress pattern, we thought we’d share this colour blocked sample sewn up during our sampling phase which has turned out to be one of Colette’s favourites.
Using a combination of three of our Abby Check linens, we mixed, matched, played around with teeny
…until we finally settled on Tan, Navy and Olive. If you’d like to try something similar, here’s the meterage you’ll need:
112cm – 0.80m, 0.80m, 0.80m, 0.80m, 0.85m, 0.85m, 1.00m, 1.05m, 1.15m
140cm – 0.70m, 0.70m, 0.70m, 0.70m, 0.80m, 0.80m, 0.85m, 0.85m, 0.85m
112cm – 2.10m, 2.10m, 2.10m, 2.20m, 2.25m, 2.25m, 2.25m, 2.30m, 2.30m
140cm – 1.15m, 1.20m, 1.20m, 1.85m, 2.05m, 2.05m, 2.05m, 2.30m, 2.30m
112cm – 0.70m, 0.70m, 0.70m, 0.70m, 0.75m, 0.75m, 0.75m, 0.75m, 0.75m
140cm – 0.70m, 0.70m, 0.70m, 0.70m, 0.75m, 0.75m, 0.75m, 0.75m, 0.75m
The other variation we made with this version is that – instead of the hem panel featuring knife pleats – we attached a simple gathered ruffle. This dress has SO much potential for some excellent scrap busting and colour blocking fun and we’re very much looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
