I was telling you while sharing my Persephone pants that I was always late sewing the latest trendy patterns, and here I am with a new project: the Kielo dress, favorite pattern of the sewing blogosphere since 2014! I got to say that I wasn’t in love with this pattern when it first came out: the shape of the skirt that tapers at the bottom was far from my fit-and-flare comfort zone. It seems that my tastes have changed, because since I sewed it, of all my dresses this is the one in which I find myself the most beautiful!…
I finally sewed my first Named pattern! I’ve been admiring the aesthetic and apparent quality of this Finnish brand’s patterns for years, but I’ve always had trouble picturing myself in their garments – too edgy for me. But then the Playground collection was released and I instantly fell in love with the Reeta shirtdress and the Helga playsuit. I managed to talk myself out of the playsuit, since I couldn’t figure out where to wear it, but the dress went straight to my pattern library.
