Shades of Mondrian

The title is credited to one of my sons.

When I first wore this make he said” Wow mum shades of Mondrian”.

The fabric is very much colour and geometry.

The Pattern I have made before the details are here

It is New Look 6119.

This time I thought I would make it as per the pattern but in the maxi style. The fabric is from my stash and is another that I have had for many years, just waiting for inspiration.

The drape and feel of this fabric  is wonderful and I used some black fabric as the accent. I also edited the pattern and added a bow to the shoulder for a little interest. I didn’t to  step by step as I had made it before but I am very happy with the result.

This is a great  dress terrific for warm days. Very easy and really comfortable perfect for Summer.

Even though we are now into Autumn I did get a few wears out of this dress before the weather started to turn cooler.

Happy Sewing,

Sue 🙂
