Summer in Madrid

… or at least in the new Madrid Dress from Coffee + Thread.  That’s almost equally as good, if not just better because I suspect its actually too warm in Madrid during the summer time.  But the best thing would be to go to Madrid in my new Madrid dress of course.

The Madrid dress and tunic is a faux wrap dress for woven fabric.  It includes three lengths, tunic, midi and maxi and three sleeve options.  I made the midi length with  the flared sleeves.  The pattern comes in sizes 2-20, I made a straight up 6 for me.

Since I’m totally terrified of snakes its completely logical I used viscose fabric with snakeskin print, don’t you think?!  The fabric is from Stoff og Stil.  Anita helped me pick it out, we were both drawn to the colour.  I have to use the rest to make a dress for her, I guess.

I love those flared sleeves!  The bodice has bust and waist darts on the front and shoulder and waist darts on the back, which gives the bodice a very nice shape.  There is an invisible zipper in the side seam.  All this might make it sound like sewing the Madrid tunic and dress will take forever but it really doesn’t.  The instructions are very clear and easy to follow.

I’m waiting on some linen fabric to magically appear at my postoffice and I’m thinking that it is likely it will to turn into a new Madrid dress.

If you hurry up you can get your copy of the pattern while still on sale!

I'm a mom to four fantastic kids, three boys and a girl. To teenagers and to toddlers so never a dull moment in our household :) We are from Iceland but have been living in Norway since 2001. I have a newfound passion for sewing. My hubby travels a lot for work and I needed something to do at night when the little ones are a sleep because suddenly my teenage boys would rather hang with their friends or play on their pc's than be with me - why is beyond my imagination :) Thanks to Pinterest I found some amazing sewing bloggers, whom I've been stalking, and realized that I could dig out my sewing machine and start sewing. Now it's all I think about. I've been hoarding pdf patterns and learning from all the amazing tutorials that are out there. I've decided to try out this blogging thing as well to document my sewing journey. We'll see how it goes! Thanks for stopping by, I would love it if you would leave me a comment! XOXO Dagbjört
