I made the IW1005 dress, which is an Imagewear pattern. This dress has got cap sleeves and asymmetrical ruching :) Thats the fun part. I have seen a lot of inspirational ruching with solid fabrics, which look like really good. But I wanted to try it on this fabric which I loved so much. I just made a hand drawn fashion illustration of it, it looked good. So went ahead with it.I really did not want to give away the surprise before , by posting about my illustration. So a slight re-order.. My illustration will come in the next post ;)
I came across Imagewear patterns some days back and wanted to try it. Got myself some magazines and a couple of patterns. It can be purchased form the webshop with a credit card here(madebyoranges). They are really doing a great job. It is worth every penny spent:) I loved the patterns - they are really true to their theme trendy and for the modern youth.psst - the patterns are shipped free worldwide. How cool is that?
The pattern is very well designed. Comes in multiple sizes and it is overlapped so we have to add in extra effort to trace out our size .I like it this way, it saves on production paper, so thats good! Though it says it is int he easy range of difficulty. I don't agree.. It requires skill to do ruching of the fabric, princess seams and also invisible zip and facing unit is not a beginners cup of tea I suppose. But for an intermediate seamstress it is easy - may be that's what they meant:)
