"Navy Inspiration" Dress. The facts...

       This week, a Navy dress inspiration ... Love this theme!
    I am very excited about this dress, it takes on my wish list a long time, hoping to find the perfect fabric for it. So when I saw this fabric for some time ago I thought that the association of this fabric with this model was a nice combo.
  Really, this is the pattern of the Burda magazine April 2001. I made some alterations in the pattern to adjust it to what I had in mind ...

   Mainly, I eliminated the loose folds of the skirt, this is really an adjustment, because I  was only two meters of fabric, also ... when working with stripes or checks, the amount of fabric needed is higher, so I cut a slightly circle skirt and added  the draft pockets.

    Love this detail!

 I was some  time hesitant about leaving the collar that brings the original model, I was thinking of removing it and adding a typical sailor's collar .... but then I took a look at this book I have in my cave sewing, it's very inspiring! I noticed a coat with the same neck as my dress and it was 1947. Great!

        Wonderful!!!

    Although I wanted to accentuate the effect of the yoke and the contrast with the direction of the stripes on the fabric, so I sewed the binding of this with a line of closely spaced zigzag stitch with white thread for this effect in the front yoke and back.

Photobucket  The construction of all the dress is directed at the disposal of the striped fabric lining I really enjoyed them and playing with the possibilities ....

   A glance at the garment wrong side ....
  Now, as always .... find the right accessories to get the desired style for me, but that ....tomorrow ....
  Happy sewing!

  7. This is a fabulous dress. I love navy and red, I love stripes and I love the trenchcoat dress look.

    Your construction is impeccable, as usual. I was sure you had piping on the yoke until the pointed out it was zigzagging. Very clever.

    Delightful! You will look so smart in it.

  28. Qué trabajo mas fino Rosy! Nunca se me hubiera ocurrido lo del zig-zag para
    destacar las costuras. Yo hubiera puesto un vivo blanco al bies con un
    cordón en medio, o simplemente plano. La idea del zig-zag no la había visto
    nunca, y el efecto es el mismo! Muy buena idea! Y espectacular también con
    los complementos: bolso, zapatos,cinturón y hasta labial! Enhorabuena,
    estás guapísima con el.
