Marte of Compagnie M just released her newest Pattern. The Ileana dress (read more here). It`s a truly unique pattern with so many options. You can go crazy to team the bodice with all those different sleeves, collars, pockets and skirt options. Your Ileana is going to look differently each time your going to sew it, without losing the twist Compagnie M patterns call her own. Let`s celebrate with a little dance.
I`ve choosen the Raglan bodice with the short Raglan sleeve. The short faux button placket with a round peter pan collar. And of course, the full circle skirt.
It would be also possible to choose pattern pieces of the other compagnie m patterns, they match with the Ileanadress as well. What gives you even more creative space.
The bodice is nicely finished with a lining. The skirt is hemmed with a bias-binding sewn to the inside. Such a nice touch on a swinging circle skirt (and very quick btw)!
The collar as well as the sleeves are bordered with self-made piping I had to cut from an old bedsheet. Funnily, there was no white fabric in my whole stash.
Fabric is from Atelier Brunette bought here.
You can purchase the pattern in the Compagnie-m shop, use code ILEANA10 to get a 10% discount on the pdf or the paper version.
Congratulations Marte, this dress rocks!
