Hey friends 🖤
Today I’m bringing you Vikisews Nani dress for a review… And let’s be real, a show-off. But first, this was my Pinterest inspiration board for making it:
Vikisews brought us another pattern worth millions, because that’s how I feel in this dress. It’s glamorous, it’s sexy and it screams “drama”. Sewing was very simple but not easy- after a serious mental debate I decided to hand-sew sleeve band, hem and the whole facing, which took approximately 3 weeks to finish… Juuust kidding- 4 hours, but still…
Fabric is PU coated double stretch jersey by Minerva Crafts (PU stands for polyurethane- vegan leather). Fabulous fabric with moderate stretch and all great features of jersey and pleather in one. Sewing was bit slippery (the PU is pretty smooth), so when sewing right sides facing- it was a battle. I won, of course.
I used teflon foot on my machine made for leather and suede- this one from Ebay.
I decided to not accessorize it at all (except my rings- but that doesn’t really count), since it’s so voluminous with many details. There is only so much that my 5’4 can carry gracefully.
Would I recommend it? Y.E.S. and yes! Not just that, I am going to make a video on how to do it (in case that you find Russian intimidating) and because I need to have one more of it in cotton- for more casual look!
Ahhhh I can’t wait!
See you soon! Xoxo
