Sointu Tee Dress Hack

If you follow me on Instagram you may well have seen me sneak peek this dress tons of times over the past few weeks. I have hardly taken it off since I made it recently! I made this dress from the softest most gorgeous Art Gallery Jersey from Minerva Crafts. If you have been following this blog for a while you will probably be familiar with my moon phase tattoos on my left arm so it’s really no surprise I HAD to have this moon phase jersey in my favourite colour! It’s like it was meant to be!

It is totally hilarious that none of the pictures of this dress actually show the tattoo on my arm that inspired the making of the dress! lol.

I really didn’t want to pick a pattern that distracted too much from the glorious pattern so I chose to lengthen one of my favourite top patterns – the Named Clothing Sointu Kimono Tee. All the details on how I hacked this pattern to make it into a dress is over here on the Minerva Blog. Go check it out!

I’d say this is my first proper autumnal make – autumn/winter are my favourite seasons to sew for and I really like rusty oranges, mustard and lots of dark forest greens. I have been planning my autumn makes all summer and it feels good to have made a start on those plans! I am so excited to crack on with all my other ideas but I have quite a long list of things I want to make and so it remains to be seen if I can actually manage to make them all! What about you, have you got big sewing plans for autumn/winter?
