Okay, the title says it all. I love the colour navy! Definitely my favourite neutral. And florals, well not all florals suit me, but they just give an air of femininity, don’t you think? Anyway, I bought this lovely, soft rayon knit and decided to pair it with theNina Lee Mayfair dress pattern(it is available in both printed and PDF versions).
Pattern:Nina Lee London pattern, “The Mayfair Dress” in long sleeves and knee-length skirt views.
Size made:Included was Size 6-20, I made size 6.
Pattern pieces:6 pieces in total including 2 maxi extensions. For my version I used 4 pieces.
Fabric used: Rayon knit [95% rayon, 5% spandex, width 148cm, length 2m, made in China, bought from Spolight]
New Techniques used: First time trying Burrito method.
Modifications: Stitched up the front neckline by 4cm.
I am so excited to finally have a jersey dress that fits! That’s a huge perk of home sewing. I can see more Mayfairs in my wardrobe in the future. It is great to layer under cardigans and coats too!
