One of my sewing motto : always use my fabrics as much as I can. So I’m gonna show what I’ve done with my last sewing projects scraps !
So let’s start chronologically with the scraps from my Coco Dress: all I had was a square of 30cms x 30cms, cut twice. As the cotton voile was really fluid and light, I thought a tank top, finished with bias, might be a good idea. And as usual, Burda saved my life !
Here is the top 144 from the French edition of July 2013 : the pattern starting a size above Juliette’s one and intended for knit fabrics, the result was not really guaranteed. But with scraps I did not risk much!
We go on with the Belladone scraps ?
Think I’ve got a new OCD : Easter> Belladone > scraps> Mini Perle ! Okay I must confess, I’m crazy in love with this pattern…this one is my fifth version. 😀
I just made a small mistake on the finishes: the cotton piqué being thick, it would have been better open the side seams rather than neaten together and fold in the back. But whatever, my baby girl loves her new skirt !
Let’s finish with the Cha dress scraps ?
Nothing quite new here, I simply sewn this little Burda dress again.
This time I was careful with the dress lenght : I added 10cms at the hem. (yep…that much !).
