Rule, Britannia, my dress....


 

  After so long, I´m  getting back , to enjoy my spare time with the best thing in the world ... sewing!.
   So I spend the last two days to sew a dress for this week  theme  at " Sew Weekly". It´s   "Rule, Britannia" with white, blue and red....



  I chose for this occasion a pattern of Burda May 2009, with a sailor print fabric in beautiful and bright colors, white, navy blue and red.
  I eliminated the rufles that takes the original model at the neckline and hem line, in its place, I opted for a stitch tip that makes overlock, it is called "Repulgue" in my language, please , What is its name in English???






    Now I have new batteries installed,  a new dress in my closet gives me new energy and a head full of ideas, I hope that this dress has liked you as much as me and I am on the next project,  my closet is filling with garments made ​​by me step by step, which is my dream ....

  1. Rosie your dress looks great, I love the design you chose! I may have to try this pattern for myself :) I don't know for the English name of the hem but in French we call it "bord roulotté"

  21. I love these colours. Nowadays, I try to fill my closet in sailor style.
    I made this dress previously and it was really comfortable in hot weather.
