This month’s theme on Sew It Up is very fitting for the week after Christmas & New Year’s eve. ‘The Hangover’. Since I’m the one in charge of post-writing this month I had to make an outfit of my own. I didn’t had to think twice about it…

I regularly work at home and I love wearing comfortable outfits (that I can also wear when I want to get outside!) Those well known H&M t-shirtdresses do a great job, but their fit isn’t great and they get flimsy after a lot of washes.

This fabric was bought together when I went to the Stoffenspektakel (dutch fabric fair) and I met St├ęphanie for the first time ever. We bought the same fabric.
It was stil chilling on both our shelves (In the mean time St├ęphanie got a beautiful baby girl, so it’s been chilling out for far too long!) so we decided on twinsies dresses!

My love of Nettie is well known and documented and I decided it was about time for a Nettie Dress

Flat Pattern Adjustments

  • added 4 cm to the back neckline to make layering easier
  • added 2 cm to the scoop front for modesty reasons
