Shelby Dress

Thursday, June 24, 2021

 Hi Everyone, 

So I want to share with you my new favourite dress. It's the Shelby Dress by True Bias and I have no idea why it's taken me so long to make one. It's always been on my list but I think I just bypassed it so many times when I couldn't decide on the fabric. BUT then I got this Viscose Blend Linen in the shop and totally fell in love with it. I even included this combination on my Summer Wardrobe Inspiration post. Sadly this fabric is all sold out because you all loved it too! Haha. But I do have an alternative which you can buy HERE.  

I am totally in love with the shape and style and I just think it suits my body shape. I made the short, dress style Shelby and I know I want to make another one. But maybe I'll try a romper next as I think that would be super cute for summer. It comes in a full length style as well for both romper and dress, so don't worry if you're not a fan of the mini style.
I love how the dress is made up of shaped panels which are sewn together to create the curves. It's just so flattering. 

I made no fit adjustments, I made my straight size and it came out exactly how I wanted it to fit. So I know I was lucky with this one. I didn't change any of the style aspects and I also didn't make a toile. So thank goodness it all worked out. I think it depends on the fabric you make it in, but as this fabric was so easy to sew and I did try it on a few times during the making process, I just went for it. 

I don't want to bore you with how happy I am with this dress. But you will see me sharing it on Instagram a lot, just a warning haha. I hope you might have gained a little inspiration to make one yourself. 

Happy Handmade!
