The inner story:


O vestido é completamente forrado e o forro é cosido à mão às vistas e à fita do fecho atrás:
This dress is fully lined and the lining is hand sewn to the facings and zipper tape on the back:

Aplicação de renda na bainha do forro (cosida à máquina):
The lining hem (lace is machine stitched to the lining):
Aplicação de renda no acabamento da bainha (a bainha e a renda são cosidas à mão):
Finishing on the hem of the dress (both hem and lace are handstitched):
Tiras para prender a alça do soutien nos ombros:
Bra strap holders on the shoulders:
Acabamento da abertura e etiqueta bordada à máquina:
Zipper/facing finishing and machine embroidered label:
Conclusão: Este vestido foi simples e rápido de fazer (pelo menos para mim!): demorei uma semana. É um modelo que penso adequar-se bem a este tecido pela sua simplicidade e estilo retro e foi possível executá-lo com apenas 1,10m de tecido. O resultado final lembra os vestidos que se usaram nos anos 60! Não precisei de fazer qualquer alteração ao molde e estou a pensar utilizá-lo de novo com outro tecido pois gosto mesmo das linhas e da forma como assenta.
Conclusion: This dress was simple and quick to pull through (At least for me!): I took one week to finish it. The model is adequate for this fabric for its simplicity and retro style; 1,10m of fabric is barely enough to make this dress. The final result reminds me those dresses worn in the 60's! I didn't make any alteration/adjustment to the pattern and I plan to use it again in the future because this dress fits me like a glove!

Adrienne said...

Looks wonderful Tany! Love the lining!!! Another great job!

Anna said...

I found your blog yesterday and started browsing through your past entries. Great work! I love the bra strap holders and the lace hem on your last dress.

Lori said...

Wonderful dress, Tany, all your special touches are just bonuses for us. Also, thanks for all the information your provide.

Anna said...

Tany, forgot to mention that the lining looks gorgeous. How long did it take you to hand-sew it?

Ariane C said...

Tany the dress looks great! You can put an outfit together so fast! I must learn to sew faster.

Erica B. said...

Tany,
That dress is gorgeous and I'm in love with the lining. I'm making a shift dress for my SWAP and I am book marking your post for this one.

KayB said...

As always.... simple but stylish. Really cute, Tany!

Tany said...

Thanks ladies!!

Anna: Welcome to Couture et Tricot! I took 2hours aprox. to hand sew the lining to the dress; the stitches are more or less 4mm apart. I could skip the lining for this dress because there is no see-through but I prefer to line it for comfort and durability. I could also skip the facings and just stabilize the lining on the neckline and shoulders but I like the edges better when there are facings, specially if they are understitched. Thank you for your comment!

marita said...

I like the facing+ lining options just as you did it, it feels more stabile and not to mention luxurious,beautiful work as always.

I love the pattern of the fabric most of all, remember what we talked about?

filomena said...

Que gira ficas assim retro ;o)

Continuo a ficar impressionada com os pormenores que acrescentas a uma peça "simples" e ainda assim concluí-la tão rapidamente. Uau.

dawn said...

It's beautiful on you. As usual, you've incorporated a lot of extra special details inside...very "couture." I hope it's nice and you're enjoying it today! (well, I guess I should say I hope you enjoy-ed it today!)

What a great dress! I liked the fabric immediately and this style although simple, really highlights the print. The finishing is perfect, and I'm sure makes a huge difference in wearing the dress.

I hope you can wear it soon! I couldn't wear it here - it's rainy and 55F.

Els said...

A simple dress design but it stands out of the crowd due to the fabric you choose. Enjoy wearing this one and many more. It suits you.

Alex said...

I really like the dress, so cute! I thought I would delurk to comment about it! I really enjoy reading your blog, and all the information you provide!

Crystal said...

Beautiful, as usual! Oh, how I LOVE the fabric! It is just perfect!

Audrey said...

Olá Tany, nossa amiga ficou muito charmoso o seu vestido realmente ficou muito bem em você eu com certeza usaria este molde pra fazer outro.
Um beijo
Audrey

Vicki said...

Gorgeous! It looks fab on you and I just love the matching shoes.

A couple of questions if I may?
The lining - was that stretch too? Or don't you mind losing the stretch factor of the dress fabric?
And the tiny button on the inside of the zip - is that to minimize possible pull on the neckline and zip?

Love the lace details and the hand stitched lining. You really do have some beautiful clothes! :))

Tany said...

Obrigada a todas(os)! Thank you all!

PaulAndre: Seja muito bem-vindo! Visitei o seu blog e adorei, vou acrescentar na minha lista de "Inspiração" no sidebar! Obrigada pelo seu comentário tão simpático!

Alex: Thank you so much! Welcome to Couture et Tricot!

Vicky: Thanks! The stretch factor on this fabric is minimal; the fabric is quite stable and stiff so I opted for a very lightweight and sheer lining that has no stretch factor. It works because this is not a very close fitting dress and this type of lining fabric is great for summery clothes. I got it from the local notions store and today I will try to get some more and I'll ask for its composition. Thanks again for commenting!

Tany said...

Vicky: Answering to your second question: the button inside serves that purpose; I'm allergic to most metals and I used to sew a hook&eye to finish the zipper opening; I owe the idea of using the tiny button and the fabric loop to Diva Els; this way I avoid my allergic reaction to the hook&eye metal and I get a clean and neat finish on the zipper opening!

Adrienne said...

Tany, all my emails to you are bouncing back as well! lol

cidell said...

I've alway wondered what hem tape ws or how it worked. It looks amazing. The dress is just so pretty and fun!

Linda said...

Your dress is stunning. The classic style coupled with the hot fabric gives it such class. I love this style dress and I am inspired now to add one to my wardrobe soon.

Celina said...

Lindo! Lindo! Adoro a cor e o estampado e o modelo. E o pormenor da renda no forro. Mais uma vez fico abismada com a rapidez com que as coisas surgem feitas aí desse lado. Uma inspiração.
Beijinhos
