Combi Dominique

I’ve not been idle since the release of the new patterns, the Xerea dress and Sorell trousers. I’m already designing the next patterns and I’ve also taken some time to sew summer graments.

I started with the Dominique jumper and made just one change: instead of the long legs, I cut the pattern pieces as a short.
I knew I would wear it more easily if it was short, as we have a very very warm summer here.

I could have used the smaller one as it’s a little bit too big (I have to wear it with a belt and it makes some pleats around the waist, not very nice). So for the next one, I’ll go with size 34 and reduce the bodice length just a tiny bit as I’m way shorter than the height its designed for.

The light blue linen I bought is perfect for summer, I managed to hammer the snap-on buttons quite well and I love the short version: I find it playful and elegant at the same time.Very soon I’ll show you the Juliette shirt I made…
