Spunky with a very distinct style, fun to boot and a pleasure to know! How can I not make an outfit in her homage! I looooooove Oona. Man, and I had the honour to compete against her on #projectsewn where we pushed our creativities to the limit.
With her killing draping skills, floating prints exploding I almost made a Maxi version of the Nettie Since my fabric would only allow a mini maxi ( is that a thing?)
A bodysuit, so simple and versatile... don't you think simple patterns always showcase prints like no other? Are you shocked by long sleeves in plain summer? I made this before a heatwave hit the UK.
Same alterations from previous version. I added a swimsuit elastic across the back after the previous version started to move a little after
wearing dancing. The shoulders are already narrow but I make it even more by my favourite method of finishing.
Sewing an elastic on the wrong side all around, folding and than stitching with the twin needle. I sometimes use interfacing instead of elastic. I know, I need to add extra length but I was reckless! Miss Oona would certainly approve of that!
This version I skipped the poppets. I don't like sewing or wearing them. After buying and wearing two bodysuits without, I was pleased that I made that choice. Now I also know how this would look wearing as a swimsuit. I added cuffs, another favourite thing!
This super fun print was bought in Portugal. Addresses and tips should be in the blog some time in the future. I cannot catch up with the long list of posts I have planned.
Woo Hoo #sewcialists for planing this fun challenge.
