With so many glorious new Liberty of London silks now available both in-store and online, we decided to give one of them a test spin – by way of a pattern review! This week we bring you ‘Adrift Dress’ by Papercut patterns.
Supplies | To make an Adrift Dress of your very own, you will first need to get your hands on the pattern. You can purchase it in-store from any of our physical locations worldwide http://iwant.thefabricstore.co.nz/ OR direct from Papercut Pattern’s website – http://papercutpatterns.com/
You will also need fusible interfacing and a ‘sharp’ machine needle (best for sewing delicate silk fabrics). The pattern also calls for cording for the drawstring waist, however, we made our own ribbon out of the leftover dress fabric instead.
We love the luxurious drape and swing of both the ruffle hem and sleeves of our crepe de chine adrift. It’s SUPER comfy to wear, and we can see ourselves making a bunch up in different fabrics for both evening and daywear.
Sewing-wise it’s definitely a little more on the difficult side, but the instructions are super clear with great pictorial guides to help the process go smoothly. Hope you like our Adrift as much as us! Share your creations with us on Instagram: #thefabricstore @wearethefabricstore X
