If there’s something I never imagine I’d be doing one day was to be part of a Fashion Week, even a virtual one. But here we are hehehe It’s Madeit Patterns Fashion Week and I’m so very happy to take part. I had so much fun!
For this Fashion Show we were asked to sew their latest pattern called DROP. It’s a knit dress or top super easy to sew but that looks super cool and stylish, so do I want it? Yes please!!!! The perfect fabric for it was already in my stash and all; who cares that I bought it to make some hopefully cool pants from a Japanese pattern? I didn’t even blink, it was destiny! Haha
Just reading through the instructions made my day and I couldn’t help myself from sharing a silly photo for #droptashtic, yep we are starting a movement; it’s impossible to resist! Check out the hashtag on IG and laugh with us. 😉 I laughed so hard, Olu really has a wonderful sense of humor!!
Sooo back to Drop. From the first moment I knew I wanted to go with the dress version and luckily I had enough of my choice of fabric to make it. I don’t really know how long it took me from printing to pressing the final seams but it felt like a blink of an eye. Seriously so fast and such a perfect result! Yes!! I want more!
The fabric is NOSH jersey Fantasia again, which I become obsessed with after making a Groove dress this summer (here). I love it so much! I do think I might have messed up a bit while placing the pattern according to grain but I still Love it anyway. You know I can leave peacefully with most of my mistakes heheh 😉 (although that sure doesn’t mean I don’t notice them)
The pattern asks for a lighter weight fabric but this one still works great, if only I had some more of this fabric in black… I think I need it… for a DROP top, totally legit basic need IMO hahah I keep asking Santa for fabric but he never listens sigh… hahaha You think maybe he doesn’t read my blog?! hahahahah
We were asked to photograph our DROP’s with some cool backdrops… Humm taking photos outside isn’t one of my favourite things particularly of myself. Even with my sweet husband helping me, so I went with my boring white wall again… yes I know… don’t be disappointed with me, we all have our strengths hehehehe If you’d know me a few years ago you’d never even imagine I’d be keen on taking and sharing photos of myself… soo this already feels like a big victory hehhehe 😀
However you know I’m a sucker for having fun with photo collages so here you go: the most amazing backdrop is mine!! Bahaha Because I’m part alien and can turn into a giant, who can just fly to the moon (superman style but no cape needed) and survive without atmosphere! You love it right? Hahahaha just look at those pretty stars! Amazing! Hahahaha
Ok I’m so silly hahahah I hope my kids don’t be embarrassed by their mom when they go through this blog one day hahahah
But then again today is the first day of December so yeah I’m feeling Christmas vibes people!! Hope you like my new Christmas Card! hahahah 😉 This is so Fashion Week appropriate don’t you think? hahahah

And since I’m always in silly mode I just can’t help myself from sharing this song (go on and press play! just do it ok? Indulge me please Bahah) I know Olu already shared it but I’ve been singing it ever since I got the invitation so I had to do it! hahahah
