DD bought me some dress fabric. I wasn't sure quite what style I wanted and also, as like most people, I am not a standard shape any pattern we bought would need lots of alterations.
Then she found this company/site Lekala. lekala.co/ It is a 'design your own garment to your specifications' site and is quite incredible. We went through all the pattern options chose sleeve length/style, neckline, skirt type and length etc etc. Measured me up and put in the measurements.
Within minutes, the pattern came through (23 pages of A4). DD stuck it together, cut the pieces out and made the dress. The dress isn't quite complete, so no photos, but the fit is impecable and, as DD said, I am not going to meet anyone else wearing the same dress!
So if any of you are dressmakers, this site is really worth looking it. The pattern is priced in swiss francs but at current exchange rates the patterns cost well below £5.
This post is not a spam post. My name pops up enough on GN for most to know it. It is just I was so taken by this site, that I thought I would pass the details on to any dressmakers on GN.
