The Acton Dress from In the Folds.

Last April I signed up for pattern testing of a new dress pattern from In the Folds by Emily Hundt.
I have never done pattern testing for anyone before, so of course I was quite excited when I got the opportunity to be part of the test-team together with 16 other sewers.


I was asked to test View A. It has a fitted bodice with a low back and thin shoulder straps.  The skirt is A-line, and includes (optional) in-seam pockets in the side seams.
I used a grey chambray from Stoff & Stil for my dress. I made a toile (muslin) first and did some minor alterations to the bodice for better fit.


I think the pattern and instructions are really thorough and clear. It has illustrated instructions and clarifying text, step by step toward the finished dress. The pattern is classified as skill level 6: "You are confident using sewing patterns and can handle basic pattern alternations to achieve a good fit".


It was really fun to do this, and I learned a lot from Emily and the other tester…

En Lottie Shirt til

Jeg likte så godt Lottie toppen som jeg sydde i juni at jeg laget en til.  Se innlegget om den første her.

Denne gangen i rød Lille Martine-stoff fra Stoff & Stil, og med 3/4 ermer.

Blomstret skråbånd i halsringningen.

Denne laget jeg på sensommeren en gang (i august/september?),  men fikk ikke tatt noen bilder av den før i oktober.
Derfor veldig kjedelige bilder på kleshenger inne i dårlig lys :-(

Sesongen er over for bruk av denne nå, men den blir helt klart tatt frem igjen og brukt til våren. Deilig lett og luftig stoff dette :-) og en herlig modell som jeg liker svært godt!
Ser ikke bort ifra at jeg vil lage enda flere av denne :-)
Dette får bli mitt plagg for september i min syutfordring 2016.
