Make Norma Your Own !
Pattern hacking? Isn't that illegal or something? NO WAY! Pattern hacking means altering a pattern so that you end up creating your own version of that pattern. This can range from minor adjustments such as changing the length (transform the blouse into a dress) or opting for a different fabric (play with lace elements) to major adjustments such as merging elements of different patterns. You can, for example, mix the Norma with the collar or sleeves of the Holly Dress.
WOW! The Norma Hack submissions we received were out-of-this-world gorgeous! Talk about tough choices... Picking just three winners was a serious job. In the end though, we did manage to narrow it down. It’s our pleasure to introduce you to our winners:
Just look at the front of Sandra's Norma blouse! She extended the sleeves and added ruffles and turned it into the most versatile blouse: combine it with trainers for a casual look, and with heels for something a little more chic.
Cécile turned Norma into a cardigan! Close the buttons and wear it as a jumper above trousers, or wear it open buttons over a dress. What a great idea!
Finally, a Norma dress: there were so many beautiful Norma dress hacks which didn't make it easy for us to choose. Ninah's gorgeous photoshoot convinced us to choose her as a winner! She changed the neckline into a square shape and added a ruffle bottom. Perfect.
