Today i`m part of the Jaanu Blog Tour. You`ve surely already seen the new pattern, An of Straight Grain just released. Actually, it`s a two in one pattern and a collaboration between Twee Emmerkes Water and Straight Grain.

The first version the Elena is a A line dress with 4 box pleats and the Norah which is more a party dress with 6 box pleats.

Have a look at the funny little video!

I`ll present you my version of the Norah dress which I sewed during the pattern-test.

You probably ask yourself, why I did`t iron before the photo shoot. I can tell you, I really made desperate efforts! What you see is the best result I could achieve. The fabric seems to crease really easily. Fabrics are cotton solids from Micheal Miller bought at Petit Couture. The striped one is from Petit Pan found at Petit Pan in Antwerpen.

I sewed a size 18 Months without adjusting anything. The fit is perfect. To get the striped look, I just cut the pattern apart exactly on the lines who indicate the box pleats and sewed everything back together (be sure to add seam allowance!). A bit of work but a fun result.
