Pucci Pucci Poo!

IMG_5832

05 Jun Pucci Pucci Poo!


You might think I made myself a little nighty and I can understand why. It’s a muslin that I completed from start to finish and I think I’ll wear it as a bathing suit coverup.

Here is the pattern,

and here is the dress.

IMG_5832

I succumbed to temptation during my trip to Baltimore in April and bought a piece of Pucci silk jersey from Mendel Goldberg. The owner, Alice Goldberg drove to Baltimore from NYC with a trunk full of fabric, andΒ I filed in line with my other classmates to relieve her from her heavy load πŸ˜‰

Sewing Pucci silk jersey was a brand new experience for me, and Alice handed me a photo of the Pucci garment made from this fabric during our transaction.

Not wanting to humiliate my children, I decided to play it safe.

IMG_5912

You’re welcome, children.

After completing the muslin, I knew a V-neck design would not suit this fabric. I also decided the straight dress was the way to go (View A). The only problem was View A featured a racerback and I desiredΒ a more classic style. I managed to reconcile the two styles by tracing the lines from one pattern piece to another, but just to be safe I cut the pattern slightlyΒ large before whittling away the side seams until I had the fitΒ I wanted.

IMG_5848

I cut and sewed the dress as a maxi, but once completed the look overwhelmed me soΒ IΒ removed 17 inches of fabric.

What’s with the ruffle you asked? By now one mightΒ realize thatΒ issues tend toΒ surface during many of my sewing projects…….

This time the neckline puckered …. and who wants a puckered Pucci?

IMG_5859

Next to fitting, the fabric placement was the key to the success in making the dress. I mirrored the front and back hoping the groovy design would flatter my waistline.

IMG_5851

All of the seams are finished with the serger, and I followed Leisa Stanton’s narrow hem tutorial for the hem.

IMG_5831

Goodness …. sewing is not for sissies, but I’m not complaining! I played it safe but I’m ready for another round….. and didn’t I just save myself at least a thousand dollars? πŸ™‚

    Love the dress! The fabric print is wonderful. It is all the better for the ruffle at the neckline. Not fussy on the narrow hem though. Does the fabric wrinkle up like tissue paper? Just wondering if it is a “standing up” only dress.

      Thanks, Lauren! I’ve not worn it yet, but I think it’s a party dress (a.k.a. the Stand Up Dress), however it’s really comfortable πŸ™‚

        Then standing up you will be at the next party. It definitely is a “circulating” dress. I am sure you will get lots of compliments on it. Party away!

    You placed the design perfectly, WOW! What a show stopper this dress is. So flattering and I agree with your decision to not make it a maxi. You’re so tiny, I bet it did overwhelm you. You look fantastic.

    Oh how I love this on you! The pattern placement could not be better. Looks like a perfect dress for some of the wedding festivities. Since I seem to be in a maxi state of mind right now, my first thought was that it would make a show stopping long dress but you’re right, of course. I think it would have swallowed you up. Hopefully you can salvage the cut off portion for a little skirt.

      Thank you, Lisa! This fabric was not the easiest to sew – very slippery and lightweight. I used pattern/fabric weights to keep it from sliding during cutting, sewing and ironing and taped it down to the cutting board for cutting the smaller pieces. I also hand basted everything before sewing and used a microtex needle in the machine AFTER sewing the first seam. πŸ˜‰

    That fabric print is AMAZING and you look wonderful in that dress! I’m sure my daughters would feel the same about the Pucci version but we can dream of younger days, right?

    This is lovely, and you have a wearable muslin! I don’t mind the ruffle at all, and think it makes it unique.

    It’s beautiful. Sarah, did you underline (batiste?) and line it? I know that fabric is a light as a feather. Gorg!

    Your pucci is much better than the original! I love it!

    A very stylish pucci and love the ruffle and how it helps with the puckering, very clever.

      Thank you, Sharon! While the fabric needed zero embellishment, the ruffle seemed to work this time πŸ™‚

    I keep coming back and looking at this dress. Simply stunning and if you hadn’t have said anything about the puckered neckline, I’d have thought that the ruffle was meant to be coz you are such a ruffly type of girl anyway and this ruffle is one of my favorites! Well done, Sarah! xx
