Wednesday Addams, Mother of 212:00 am
Today I'm over at Made with Moxie to celebrate Selfish Sewing Week! I'm a bit honoured to kick it off with this Wednesday Addams dress!
I was given the Angie Dress pattern by Sis Boom to review, and I was both excited and scared! I mean sewing for myself is okay, sewing for myself to show off to other people is a bit intimidating. Especially since it's been almost 5 years since I made a nice dress! You can read my full review over here.
I used scrap fabric for the pockets, does it look familiar? Yep, Vincent's pink pants!
Vincent helped out with the photos. Just because it's Selfish Sewing doesn't mean I don't still deal with Mum Life ^_^ The inside of my dress has splats of honey and butter because children.
The original pattern is nice and simple but I self-drafted a pattern for the collar and added that on. It's kind of classic looking, but a wee nod to my heroine Wednesday Addams.
That's my little smug smile. I'm pleased that these photos are going better than round one ahah. Also I tried jumping, because jumping in dresses is hilarious and fun and I have the maturity of a five year old.
The skirt is gathered onto the bodice, but there is also elastic in the back to cinch it in a little. I really like this. It's not a boxy shapeless dress, and even without the elastic it fit quite well. It doesn't depend on a belt to be wearable. The darts give it some nice subtle shaping and it isn't hard to pull it on over your head.
This is definitely a pattern I am going to use again and again for myself! It has several different neckline and skirt options. And it's just getting warmer here so maybe some pretty dresses is just what I need!
