Hellooo my ladies (and gents)! This post is long overdue, I can tell you! (Is she seriously posting a summer dress right now? Yes, she is!)

As you know, I released my Hepburn Dress pattern in August and have been working on all the different variations since then. At the moment I somehow sew more than I can photograph or write about (living the dream, guys!) and I really need to work on maintaining a better equilibrium. Otherwise things like posting pictures of summer dresses on October will keep happening.

The new Pussy Bow Blouse pattern by Sew Over It

Hi folks! Today I sharing my newest pussy bow blouse with you! After sewing three (!) Lottie Blouses, it was time to try another pussy bow blouse pattern. Luckily enough, Lisa, mastermind behind Sew Over It, asked me to test her newest pattern, the Pussy Bow Blouse. Lisa is known for her gorgeous patterns, mostly basic wardrobes staples (such as the Ultimate Trousers pattern or the Ultimate Wrap Dress) with a vintage touch.

Another Hepburn Dress: georgette and a satin lining

By now you probably know that I’m a sucker for chiffon and georgette fabrics, although they are difficult to cut out and shit to sew. For some reason I always end up buying at least one chiffon/georgette when I go fabric shopping and this might be due to the fact that these kinds of fabric are usually quite cheap 😀

A Hepburn Skirt and bold colour choices

Hepburn Skirt by thisblogisnotforyou.comA little while ago, I noticed that I often go very safe in terms of fabric choices. For some reason I never go with the bold prints and colours (with the exception of bright red, I guess) and usually grab all the plain colours, especially navy blue. Since the Hepburn Skirt is perfect for colour-blocking, I decided to go with bolder colours, the ones that I didn’t have in my wardrobe yet but could see myself wearing. Well, here you can see the result!Hepburn Skirt by thisblogisnotforyou.comI made the knee-length variation of the Hepburn Skirt and chose to use a different for the front and back side panels. The Hepburn Skirt by thisblogisnotforyou.comHepburn Skirt Front and Back View

The Hepburn Dress and an army of horses!

The Hepburn Dress by Thisblogisnotforyou.com
After weeks of working my bum off to finally get to the point of releasing my patterns, guess how I spent my first “day off”? Yes, hemming, taking pictures, editing pictures and preparing blog posts. At least I managed to re-watch the second part of Season 1 Game of Thrones while I did that. Phew!

So here it is (and yes, I feel a bit like a proud mum!) – Lady Hepburn, made with a navy polyester fabric with a horse print bought on Goldhawk Road. The fabric almost looks almost black in the pictures, but it’s acutally a really dark navy. The pictures are a bit crap today as I had to make to with tripod and self-timer inside the flat instead of shooting outside with the Mr.The Hepburn Dress by Thisblogisnotforyou.com
