Since autumn 2016, I’ve been making good use of my Seamwork subscription and sewing a lot of basic clothes, which haven’t been blogged so far. As a pledge for Me Made May 2017, I’ve decided to blog all of them, starting with the Ida dress by Seamwork magazine.
I’ve purchased it straight away since I love the style lines: bateau neckline and cap sleeves.
It has a shapely silhouette without being too hugging, perfect for workdays and for shopping sprees with friends. Let’s say fabric-shopping, to be honest, since it is nowadays the only thing I buy.
Te Ida dress has a side split on the right side, making it easy to walk and move around, and center back seam in the bodice, which allows some nice shaping.
Construction is quite simple, with elasticated waist and no closures, since it is designed for jersey fabric. My fabric is a polyester scrap bpught at marché St. Aubin in Toulouse for a ridiculous price, I am very happy I’ve managed to use it up for this dress.
Needless to say, the Ida dress has been in constant rotation this winter, with boots or flats, cardigans or jeackets. Now that I think about it, I should make one more for summer time!
