Bayern Sundress - Guest Post & Mini Tutorials

Sunday, June 10, 2012









Today's a fun day for me in the world of my blog...my first guest post EVER is over atMelly Sews,作为Sundress系列的一部分!那有多令人兴奋!?我选择为Anja制作一件礼服,我真的爱上了......然后我决定制作三次!




I've called it the Bayern Sundress, because I bought the inspiration dress in the Bayern (Bavarian) region of Germany while I was travelling by tour bus across western Europe with my cousin (from Brno, Czech Republic to Paris, France). We stopped in a little town, came across a little children's clothing shop, and I bought a little dress, for a friend who was expecting her first baby.

这是我想出的:





For the tutorial on how to make the dress, pop over toMelly Sews.
它实际上很容易......我希望我的指示足够清楚!
I've been experimenting with different, hopefully easier ways to create tutorials.

And here's a couple mini tutorials on the other two looks I made...

Colour Blocking with Aneela Hoey
Sherbet Pips Fabric

IloveAneela Hoey fabrics! There's something about the sweet, simple sketches of children & animals at play that I just love. And it happened to be on sale at one of the local quilt shops! I had to pick up some of the little dog prints because Anjaloves小狗。

To do the colour blocking, I chose a contrasting dark brown cotton, cut 7.5cm (3 in), and sewed it to the bottom of the original skirt.







The result turned out just as I had wanted!





Layering with Linen


For the second variation, I layered the skirt with white linen. Gingham is one of my favourite prints, and contrasting the navy with a crisp white underneath was something I really wanted to try. I made a second skirt back & front out of the linen, 10cm (4 in) longer than the original skirt. Then I sewed it the same way as the original skirt. And attached it the same way, only inside the original skirt. Here are some photos to help explain:


And it turned out like this:
