I loved the Nore Dress* from Compagnie-M when it came out and I bought it right away. Of course I made the version with the most color blocking options. I used different fabrics for the side panels and I made the split back option.
The fabric with the girls comes from Stef's Stoffen, a fabric store right across my sewing machine dealer. This is great for a sewing related trip. I bought the fabric because I found the girls cute and I knew that our daughter would love it. When I had it at home I found it difficult to combine with other fabrics. Until I found the perfect combination.
The nosh fabric with the feathers is a piece of fabric that I won during the fashion week from Made-It Patterns in 2015. I also won some other fabric that I already used in other projects.
I sewed the Nore Dress during one of our sewing days. One of my best friends, Miranda from Inspinration, and I have been doing this for a couple of years already. We come together 2 or 3 times a year, together with our moms, who also sew, and another sewing friend to have a fun day of talking and sewing. The last time it was maybe more talking than sewing, but still I managed to sew the Nore Dress.
I wanted to add some fabric with stripes to the left side of the dress, but I did not have any fabric with stripes that matched the dress. Miranda (from inspinration) came to the rescue, she had some left over from the Nore dress she made for the release of the pattern.
The pattern (1Y - 10Y) starts off with a bit of a challenge with the pockets, but after that I was done quickly.
Pattern: Nore Dress by Compagnie-M
Fabric: Sulka Coral from Nosh fabric, Meisjes print from Stenzo and left over fabric from Miranda
