Indigo Sashiko Dress

I made this dress during the summer, but never quite had the chance to take photos with it. I found this amazing fabric in Joanns a few years ago – it is a deep indigo rayon with thick Sashiko threads running through it. Indigo is not really the kind of color I wear, but this 100% rayon fabric was thick and drapery and I love the texture, I couldn’t resist!

When my butterfly dress broke in the washer and became really too big for me, I wanted to remake the dress with this fabric. But I had a really hard time deciding which side of fabric I should use. In the end, I decided to cut the skirt part in a way that shows off both sides 🙂

I love wearing this dress, even though the cut on the chest area is not the most… enhancing 😉 The fabric is so luxurious and supple, it makes me realize I should really shop in person at Joanns more – sometimes they can have amazing apparel fabric! I would have never picked this during online shopping.

I’ve been pretty bad at blogging this year 😛 You can follow me on instagram! I try to post sewing progress & handmade outfit there… but sometimes the girls are just too cute i cant resist! I still have a few more projects to post to catch up!

Happy new year everything! Thank you for following my little adventure in sewing!
