Lately, I was so busy sewing (and reading and knitting in order to muster some willingness towards the cold season) that I completely forgot to blog some of the makes we photographed a little while ago. One of these is another version of my KEIRA CARDIGAN, which I released a few weeks ago:

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.

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

I have something super exciting to share with you! After months of work my new patterns are now finally up on le blog and ready for you to download as Print-at-home PDF patterns.

The Hepburn Collection is the first pattern collection of my new pattern company called audrey & me Patterns. The Hepburns consist of a dress and a separate skirt pattern. Both patterns are drafted to fit perfectly together so that you can combine them easily into a chic fitted dress. Depending on the fabric and bodice & skirt options you choose you can make it into a sundress, a dress fit for work or a glamorous dress for going out and sipping cocktails.
