2011#11 – Tangerine dress – Vestido tangerina

Português
English (uncheck the other box and check this one)


Editado para acrescentar: fotos minhas a usar o vestido estão publicadas aqui.

Ando bastante ocupada de novo e com pouco tempo, mas nos fins-de-semana tento aproveitar algum tempinho para costurar. Este vestido foi feito (e usado) no domingo passado no aniversário do meu pai. Acabei-o no último minuto e não tive tempo de tirar fotos com ele vestido, ficará para uma próxima oportunidade.

Descrição: Vestido tubo com encaixe de peito, bolsos metidos na costura lateral pespontados e fecho nas costas.

Molde usado: Simplicity2922, versão vestido sem mangas (cortei o tamanho 12 e aumentei um pouco o comprimento para tapar o joelho)


Modificações: além de aumentar o comprimento do vestido, também o forrei, pois o tecido que usei é ligeiramente transparente.

Mais algumas fotos:




Os sacos dos bolsos são pespontados no vestido:

Tinha pouco tecido, e para dar ao vestido o comprimento que desejava tive que aplicar uma fita de viés para fazer a bainha:

O forro é cosido à vista do encaixe da frente e depois cosido à mão à fita do fecho no avesso:


Conclusão: Um vestido relativamente fácil (“relativamente” porque o encaixe necessita de alguma habilidade para ficar perfeito), que me demorou cerca de 5 horas a fazer. O estilo lembra-me um pouco os vestidos dos anos 60, e acho que ficou muito bem. Na festa de anos do meu pai usai-o com um blazer branco e sandálias brancas, mas não tive tempo de tirar fotos antes de sair de casa… Ficará para uma próxima vez! Entretanto ainda tenho mais dois projectos para mostrar… Fiquem bem!



ETA: pictures of me wearing the dress are published here.

I’ve been quite busy again and very short of time, but during the weekends I still manage to sew something. Last weekend I had my father’s birthday party to attend and I decided to make a dress for the event. I finished it in the last minute and didn’t have time to take pictures of the outfit.

Description: Straight line dress with front and back yoke, in-seam topstitched pockets and back zipper.

Pattern used: Simplicity2922, the sleeveless dress version (cut size 12 and lengthened it a little, enough to cover the knee)


Alterations: Besides lengthening, I added a lining to the dress (this fabric is slightly see-through) and understitched the yoke and the armholes as far as I could.

A few more pictures of the dress:




The pocket bags are topstitched to the front of the dress, on the wrong side:

I was short of fabric and to provide the desired length I had to use bias tape to hem the dress:

The lining is stitched to the yoke facings and hand stitched to the zipper tape:


Conclusion: This dress was relatively easy to make (I say “relatively” because the yoke requires some skill to be done properly), and it took me around 5 hours to complete. Its style reminds me of some dresses in the 60’s and I think it turned out quite well in spite of being made in a hurry. I wore it with a white blazer and white sandals at my father’s birthday party, but I left home in a hurry and didn’t have time to snap some outfit photos,... I’ll take a rain check for that, if you don’t mind! I still have two more completed projects to show, I’ll try to post them as soon as I can! Stay tuned!

I love the color and the style of this dress, Tany. For a "rushed" sewing project, it still looks beautifully done. I bet you were the hit of the party!
