HannaH

Hanna_2___003There are a few patterns, I immediately think of, if i`m just randomly looking at the fabrics in my stash. My stash, by the way, is the spot i pick out the fabrics for all my projects. I never shop for fabric for a special purpose. I just buy if i stumble over something that speaks to me. Hannah, is one of those patterns, I keep thinking about. It`s so clever and i love wearing my first version that much (If you want to read more about Hannah nr.1). It was one of those days, I was just looking at my fabrics (odd lady i know). This very lovely cotton lawn enshuku by Kokka caught my eyes, I bought it from Miss Matatabi some time ago. The texture of this fabric is so special. Like stones on the ground of a river. I like it a lot. But as a whole dress, it would be overwhelming. It`s a fabric you want to highlight without overdose. Hannah can do that.

Hanna_2___007Hanna_2___006It sets the perfect frame for a very special fabric. Some patterns just demands more than one version. Do you have a pattern you keep thinking about?

Hanna_2___008Hanna_2___010You may notice the inspiring, beautiful location. Mr. Fliegfederfrei took those pictures of me very spontaneously, while visiting the c-mine Genk, in Belgium. Marte and Bjorn showed us that wonderful place on our last visit. That`s why my dress isn`t ironed. My leggings have a hole at the knee. My boots are dirty. Wild hair I don`t care. The location makes up for it. I love the pictures he took.

Hanna_2___012Hanna_2___013A hidden buttonplanket is the best thing if you love snaps on a dress. Laziness, that won`t be noticed. The instructions for that buttonplanket are very well made. I love how it assembles step for step.

Hanna_2___015Hanna_2___014The dresspattern doesn`t have a back seam, I accidentally didn`t place the back piece on fold. Happily, i discovered my mistake early enough to add seamallowance at centre back. Let`s call it a design element.

Hanna_2___016With two Hannah’s in my closet, I can stop thinking about that pattern now. For some time. Maybe.

  1. So perfect! I love the dress, the pictures, the floor. You look so ‘cool’ on these pictures. Not the sweet person I know. The attitude of a real model. 🙂

  2. This is such a great pattern. I really need to make this, but I find it difficult to find complementary fabrics in similar weights!

    • yea indeed it’s a great pattern! i would suggest you to use a more stable fabric as your main and a lighter one for the back detail. otherwise you’ll get lots of bulk in the shouldersseam.
