Stylearc Adeline

When Stylearc Adeline was released, it became very popular, very quickly  to the point that my blog roll became quite clogged with them for a while there. 
Even though, the style falls outside my normal comfort zone, I was immediately drawn to it because of the high low hem and the design of the bodice.  I had just the fabric in my stash as well.  The fabric is linen that I bought from Fabric Vision off their sale table last summer.  It is just a little heavier than shirting weight so options for dress styles were quite limited.  I was a little concerned though, that I could end up with a very red, boring sack.  It was Lara's version though that convinced me of what I needed to do.  I must admit, I have completely copied Lara here and topstitched my neck facing and hem facing in contrasting blue thread using the triple stitch on my sewing machine.  I also used the selvedge detail on my pockets.  I chose royal blue because of the fine royal blue thread that ran down the selvedge. 



I think the pocket detail and topstitching are my favourite things about this dress.  I wish I could have been a bit more original.  If you are reading this Lara, I hope you don't mind!


My new dress is a great addition to my early autumn wardrobe.  I just hope it gets a few more outings before the weather cools down much more.

  1. As you probably know, the Adeline is a favourite pattern of mine, having made it three times. I love your version. The red is such a vibrant colour and the blue contrasting top stitching is a nice detail. You look fabulous in your Adeline.

  6. I love the look of this dress. The line drawing isn't something I would be drawn to either but sewn up it does look fabulous.
