LOTTE MARTENS BLOG TOUR . PARTY COLLECTION

Last year Lotte Martens, a Belgium fabric designer, asked me if I would like to try their fabrics. Of course I say yes! I made a blouse for me and a dress for Teresa with this gorgeous rayon that have been worn over and over ever since I made them.

When I was contacted again to try their new Spring/Summer Collection I felt really privileged to be able to work with such luxurious fabrics again.


FABRIC: Ciccioni05 from Lotte Martens Party Animals limited edition SS18. This beautiful lightweight jarcard comes in several colors but I felt in love with the silver/pink/green combination. The fabric is really rich and luxurious and, as it is not too heavy, it has a nice drape. Though it frays easily – after all it is a jacard! – it was not hard at all to sew with. The colors are vibrant but not too laud and that makes it perfect for garment sewing. I had 1 meter of fabric so I was planning to make a blouse but, to my surprise, the fabric was enough for this dress pattern so I went for it.  


PATTERN: View W from the Japanese book Stylish Party Dresses. I knew I needed a tried and trusted pattern so I would not ruined Lotte Martens precious fabric. This pattern has a simple but elegant and easy to wear shape that fits my body type nicely (or at least I think so!) plus I had made a linen version of this dress last year and I still like it so much… I am glad I made this decision! While last time I made the dress without any adjustments, this time I had to reduce about 10cm in height as I did not have enough fabric to make it as long and decided to add inseam side pockets. I am so glad I added the pockets! They are the perfect detail for this simple dress!


Thank you so much Lotte Martens for giving me the opportunity to sew with your fabrics once again! I am delighted with my new dress and I hope spring arrives soon so I can start wearing it.

  3. Love this dress! The print is so feminine. The colours are bright but not over the top. I am impressed you managed a dress out of 1 m of fabric!
