Over the last couple weeks, I’ve been sewing my first dress. I talked about the bias tape experience here. Well I’ve finally completed it and for the most part I am pretty pleased. The pattern is from dottie angel and it’s a Simplicity pattern. I used a grey/black linen. I couldn’t find any vintage patterned fabric that I liked, but will keep hunting. Here are some pictures of the process and the final dress.
The directions were totally foreign to me. I had to look a lot of things up on the computer.
I traced the pattern on ground cover fabric. Cut out the ground cover fabric and pinned it to my fabric.
Here is a shot of the darts and the tie. Love how the darts turned out.
The dreaded pockets.
And here is the final unironed dress on the hanger.
Here I am wearing it. Happy that I’m done.
What have you been up to this week?
