Oh, Yes I Did!

Oh, yes I did match a face mask to one of my dresses.  

This is the Dhurata Davies face mask pattern. I discovered this pattern through Peter's blog post where he compared two face mask patterns. I'm in agreement with Peter, I do like the fit in the chin area and even though I haven't taken it out for a test run yet, it seems to fit over all better. I really like that it has greater overall coverage than the Craft Passion face mask. The Craft Passion face mask has a nicer finish on the casing and I did borrow the technique for this one.  

Oh and the dress...

A bit matchy-matchy? I made the dress about two years ago and I still have quite a bit of the fabric left over. It's a 100% linen and I used the same fabric for the lining. This face mask doesn't have an underlining as I just wanted to test out the fit. 

The mask is made in a size medium. I think I could go down to a size small but I'm also comfortable with the fit of this size. I will likely make a couple more for myself with this pattern. I don't know if I match them all with my wardrobe.  


The Stats

  1. I recently listened to a Tim Gunn interview. He was asked about home made face masks. He said he didn't want the "fashion" masks because then he would have to coordinate them with his outfit before he left home!! Sooo Tim Gunn!! If you hadn't heard this, thought you would appreciate it.

    1. No, I didn't hear that quote, thanks for sharing it. I was just goofing around while testing out the pattern. It made me chuckle to have a matching face mask. Gotta have some fun in these strange times, right?
