Some Sewing...

It has been a while since I last showed you some sewing so here we go. I decided to try and make this fun vintage inspired dress, designed by Lisette patterns. This is what it is supposed to look like:


And this is the fabric I choose for the whole dress. (so not two fabrics like they have on the picture) It is a cotton from the line called 'Antique Treasures' and you can find it at Fabric.com. The bodice so far: (so without the collar or the buttonhole plackets)

And one of the sleeves:

So far so good. I'm taking very small steps at a time since I find sleeves the most difficult. Especially if they need gathering and these puffy babies gather both at the top and the bottom! (and of course every garment has two sleeves so difficulty times two...)

    1. Yes, I think any of my cloggy friends will look nice underneath it all. Good thinking Heidi! ;-)

  2. Wow! That is serious grown up sewing. I'm restricted to elastic and cushions so you and your model look mighty professional to me!

  5. Dit ziet er goed uit, knap die mouw! Gave stof ook! Het gevaar schuilt hem vaak in het te gehaast willen werken, maar zo te zien doe je het heel rustig aan, super!
