The Hepworth Dress.

This is a little bit later than planned, but last week the latest Sinbad & Sailor pattern was released, and it’s a beauty.

Hannah asked me to pattern test the wonderful Hepworth dress which is a sleeveless, princess seamed bodice with a fitted waist and flared skirt. Essentially a perfect addition to all wardrobes! As I was about 38 weeks pregnant at the time, I decided to (rather optimistically!) make the dress up in my pre-pregnancy size. As a result of me currently not being my pre-pregnancy size (in no small part due to massive boob inflation caused by breastfeeding!!!), I’m afraid my pictures are limited to my mannequin. I’m hoping I’ll get it on soonish though – it’ll be perfect for summer!

The dress is really cleverly finished with facings inside, all the seams are enclosed and it’s super neat. I’m such a sewing geek when it comes to things like that and I love it!!

This fabric is a lightweight denim that was in my stash, and so in true Emily sewing style, it is blue. At some point I need to start sewing things in OTHER COLOURS and prints. I particularly love Hannah’s version but I have to say, I think the denim works pretty well here – it’s super soft too which is always good.

I can’t wait to see other versions of this pattern popping up over the web!
