A basic pattern is a treasure



                      I made the last summer dress.
When I found Patrones nº 294 magazine and I found on its front pages this wonderful dress, I knew I had to do it.







 Although I too  knew I didn´t like  the strips of fabric as wide and I  wanted  to give a differente look,  so I bought  rick-rack ribbon  in the same colours navy and red.

 As the title of the post,  have a basic pattern of your exact measurements, with all the adjustments you made in the dress and you know  you look good is comparable to having a little  treasure,  with this pattern and few changes such aschange darts site, add a collar  or sleeves I can make many others garments without fear of having to spend time getting to correct over and over again with news clothes.  A litlle treasure!!!

 So each time  you start a new garment basec on this pattern,  I will link to this post, I will also photographing the small changes you will see the adaptation and  tranformation, if you want to join me in this litlle adventure, you are welcome.



                                       Of course, accesories are  essential to turn a simple dress  into something fun and different.



 This time, I used  again the beautiful earrings that my hubby gave to my  some time along, I never tired of admiring and  I found two fun bracelets that  measure centimeters and inches.
    Perfects for me!!!!
