Delightful Delphine (From Love At First Stitch)
Time for another make from Love at First Stitch, this time its the Delightful Delphine. I had some fabric left over from my Chambray Elisalex Dress but there wasn't a huge amount so I wasn't sure what to do with it. When I saw that Delphine required only 1m of fabric I thought it would be perfect. I wore it on Sunday as part of OWOP with my Plantain tee. I really liked the combination and I love the shape and style of Delphine. I have my fabric lined up for my second version to make soon.
However, and this a a pretty big however, I am starting to get a little sick of my Chambray fabric. As you can see from these pictures it is VERY crinkly. This is after I ironed it and used LOADS of steam to flatten it as much as possible. Then I put it on and went straight to taking pictures so I didn't get any more creases and it still looks like I just pulled it out of the bottom of a suitcase.
My next Delphine is going to be thicker denim so I can still wear it with almost anything but it will hopefully press nice and flat and hold its shape a little better.
On another note, I have decided to embrace the dorky pose and from now on show you all my makes like this. I call it 'Ta-Dah!'. Zoe x
