Nani IRO Love

Gingham_Nina_01 I`m in love. It seems to be serious. I`m totally into nani IRO. I`ve been inspired by the nani IRO month, going on during may, over at Miss Matatabi. I had to try it myself. I mean, everyone in blogland seems to be excited about this fabric. After such a long time, just looking at all this beautiful creations, I finally had the chance to sew with it myself. I can tell you, it`s one of the most amazing fabrics, I ever sewed with. I`m going to be addicted! It`s painting check bought at Miss Matatabis. Frances is a very nice lady, she really cares about costumers. Shipping was fast and the parcel was so cute. She even wrote a personal little card. I felt welcome!

The dress is self-drafted. The bodice is inspired by a dress my little sister owns. Don`t know where she bought it. The skirt is a gathered rectangle, mostly because, I wanted to use the whole fabric. You wan`t believe me, I sewed this dress with just one meter. Gingham_Nina_02The back bodice is a transparent black fabric. You can`t see that so well on the pictures. And there is a little bow around the waist. So the gathered skirt doesn`t add to much bulk around the hip.

Gingham_Nina_03I like my new dress. It`s so soft and the fabric is so special. Even if it`s not perfectly fitted. I should have made a muslin first. Seriously! My sewing time is so rare at the moment. I didn`t want to “waste” my time, sewing up a muslin. In the end, I think, I would have saved a lot of time, spent with my good friend the seam ripper and in front of the mirror adjusting the fit. Lesson learned.
