The third week’s conest over at IMP2016 is ‘Hack It!’. We’re invited to “Hack” an indie pattern by altering the design or combining with other indie patterns to create your garment. So I decied to combine the Datura Bouse from Deer & Doe and the Laurel dress from Colette. I’ve made both countless times and knew that combined they’d make the perfect dress.
I used the same crisp, black Japanese poplin that I used to make G.’s shirt back in February. It was wonderful to sew with and washed really well, so I was very pleased to find that they still had some in stock in May. I wrote much more extensively about the hack over on the Monthly Stitch site, which you can read here. I love this dress it came out exactly as I imagined!
