PROJECT RUN AND PLAY . O+S POPOVER SUNDRESS

Hoje começa mais uma temporada do concurso Project Run and Play e, claro, vou tentar participar todas as semanas no sew along.
Os temas desta temporada são giríssimos!
Esta primeira semana o objectivo era reinterpretar o molde Popover Sundress da Oliver and S. Quem passa por aqui já sabe que adoro os moldes da O+S. As roupas são bem desenhadas, simples e intemporais. O design dos próprios moldes é perfeito. E as explicações e moldes também.
Já usei o molde Popover Sundress vezes sem conta. Até já o transformei umas vezes (vejam um vestido, outro vestidoum top e dois macaquinhos) mas nunca tinha experimentado fazer roupa de outono/inverno a partir dele.
Mas há sempre uma primeira vez!
Finalmente consegui arranjar coragem para cortar um dos tecidos que comprei na Dinamarca… As cores e o padrão não são nada “portugueses” e também são bem diferentes dos que costumo usar.

Project Run and Play new season starts today and, of course, I will try to sew along every week.
As usual, this season’s themes are amazing!
This first week we were asked to flip Oliver and S’ Popover Sundress Free Pattern. I think you already know I love O+S Patterns. All outfits are simple and timeless but also super cool. The patterns’ design is perfect and its instructions are really clear.
I've sewn with Popover Sundress Pattern countless times. Actually, I've already flipped it (check out this dress, this other dress, this top and a these rompers) but had never tried to make an autumn / winter outfit with it.
Well, there is always a first time!

I finally had the courage to cut one of the wonderful fabrics I bought in Denmark... Its design and colors have nothing to do with the fabrics I can find in Portugal and are also very different from the fabrics I usually sew with. A lot bolder, I must say...


Afinal o que aproveitei e o que alterei no molde original?
Aproveitei:
. O molde do corpo.
E alterei muitas coisas! Aqui estão elas:
. Incorporei a peça de remate do peito no corpo do vestido de formando uma gola que adoro!

But what did I keep and what have I changed in the original pattern?
I kept:
. The bodice shape.
And I added and changed lots of things! Here they are:
. Incorporated the yoke in the bodice in order to create a nice collar!



. Adicionei mangas compridas com efeito “duplo-balão” com a ajuda de vários elásticos.

. Added long sleeves with "double-balloon” effect, made with several elastic pieces.


. Adicionei bolsos laterais com interior em tecido branco liso e remate com fita de viés cor-de-rosa.




. Added side pockets made of simple white fabric and finished them with pink bias tape.

 
 
Nada como um guarda-roupa alegre para os dias mais cinzentos de inverno!
 
There's nothing like a colorful wardrobe to cheer the grayer winter days!

    1. I started with a regular short puff sleeve pattern. First I turned it into a long sleeve by adding some length. Then I gathered at the upper arm with a bit of elastic sewn directly to the fabric and gathered at the wrist by incasing another bit of elastic in the hem.
      I think I will be working on a pattern or a tutorial on these sleeves very soon...
