The Gabrielle dress

on

Pattern: Gabrielle from Seamwork
Fabric: Stoff og stil (no longer in stock)

The Gabrielle dress is a pattern from Semawork magazine, in the may issue. I subscribe to Seamwork, but I haven’t made up that many of there patterns lately. But I totally fell for the Gabrielle dress.

From Seamwork:

The Gabrielle dress is a modern take on the classic skater dress. It features a tied back yoke with a cut-out that lets just the right amount of your upper back peek through.

The princess seams and flared skirt provide a flattering silhouette. This dress features a slight scoop neckline that is complimented by sweet cap sleeves. The Gabrielle dress is fitted through the bust and waist, while the flared skirt swings loosely throughout the hips.

I made mine in a size M that corresponded with my messsurments, but would size down if I make it again. And I might make it again the bodice and the cut-out back are a nice design on a skater dress.

I would maybe try to make it a sleeveless dress without the capsleevs, because they keep curling up to the dress on the hem.

In this photo I wear the dress with a strapless bra, and I should have made sure the bra was not visible in the pictures. But to be clear you can se the bra straps if you wear a regular bra, but I don’t really care. You can see it with a regular bra in this Instagrampicture of the dress from me-made-may

I did not try to pattern match this fabric, and since it turned out like this I maybe should have. It kind of looks like I tried and failed miserable. So it might be smart to go for a fabric with a little less print.

    I don’t think the sleeves are that bad at all but have you tried giving them a good steam with the iron? It might help πŸ™‚
    Love the print though, it really suits you!
