Hello seamstresses! I haveÂ some fabulous new photographs of the Essential Denim Dress, Sew Different’s most popular paper pattern. This gorgeous orange version is madeÂ by the very talented Mollie MoxieÂ who is one of several fabulousÂ sewists who test run patterns for Sew Different. I love her sense of style and her choice of fabrics.
Â When I sent MollieÂ the pattern for the Essential Denim Dress a while back I had no idea what what her take on it would be. I love the new look she has given it and the way she has chosen to make it inÂ just a single colour – this gorgeous and vibrant tangerine linen. She hasÂ maintained the denim style double stitching where the panels joinÂ to emphasise the strong diagonals that the dress is so well known for. If you’re not familiar with double stitching then have a look at my post on twin needles to help you getÂ that authentic denim look. It’s easier than it looks!
The Essential Denim Dress (available here as a multisize paper or instantly downloadable pattern) Â as the name suggests,Â was originally made in denim – have a look here if you haven’t seen the post. It works well with thick tights for the UK winters but Mollie’s version in a light linen makes the dress much more suitable for the hot summers that we only ever see a glimpse of. Looks stunning Mollie!
