Inari - again....and again!

Hi I'm Trine, but you might know me as the Inari Lady.

I'm not a 100% sure but I think the two below might be my Inaris 8 and 9. Yes, I'm making all the Inaris!! All the originals and all the hacks.

It's only a matter of time before the machine can do the Inari all by itself.

It's an easy to sew but very well designed cocoonish sack dress. A genuine man repeller (not that it'll ever stop me). A sucker for sacks - that's me!

The original pattern comes with a crop tee and a dress option. So far I've only made Inari Dresses but as you shall see I made a tee as well this time.

Let's start with the dress. This pink baby is made of the softest, easy to handle faux stretchy suede from Stofdepotet. Perforated faux suede. As I wrote in my previous blog post I just had to make something for myself with this fine fabric.

I didn't make any changes to the top part of the dress. Well, I omitted the neckline facings (I'm not a fan of the facings as they are designed for this particular dress. I have used them a couple of times, but I've always added a little width to them as I find them too narrow.) In fact this time I made the easiest neckline finish of all times - just turned under once and topstitched. Not the prettiest finish but the easiest one to do in stretchy fabric. Shame on me. I did make some changes to the bottom hemline as you can see. Instead of making the side slits I did a curved hem on both front and back. And I left the hemline raw. I might do a hemline facing at some point, but I'm not sure it'll be necessary as the fabric doesn't really fray. I really like how this new hemline turned out. I'm still a big fan of the original side slits I just wanted to try something new.

And now for the tee. I made myself this soft, drapy high collar Inari tee. And then Luna stole it....

As you can see I changed the neckline. I raised it a little both front and back and added a simple, semi-high collar. I didn't make any changes to the sleeves but I did add some length to the tee. Luna loves it so much. She has several fitted turtleneck tees - but wasn't even aware that she was missing a slouchy short sleeved version before she saw mine. Now ours.

This knit fabric is also from Stofdepotet.

And finally show Mum your 'cute Kindergartner pose' ....(she'll hate me for this)

  1. adorable. always. love both versions! it's a great sign when a blogger makes one pattern over and over again...that does more to convince me of it's greatness than anything they might say, you know??

  2. I love the sleeves and the neckline of the dress! And the way you cut the hem is really fantastic! Also, isn't that how it goes with kids - one moment they're in kindergarten and the next, they're all grown up! It really flies!
