Hello fine sewist! I have been on a bit of a sewing hiatus, moving to a new city and settling into a new job. Let me tell you what a relief it was, even though all of the boxes are not unpacked yet, to do a bit of sewing! I was very excited as well, to be trying out a new pattern that I designed and commissioned to be made into a PDF! I will share it all with you, very soon, for free, -yay! but I wanted to iron out the kinks first. This first attempt that I am showing here is not my finest sewing hour- to be sure, (I only attempted to match plaid at the side seams, and this rayon slipped like crazy when I was cutting) I just wanted it done and sewn up so that I could see how the pattern was looking! Indeed, it needed some tweaks, the collar is not quite the shape that I had wanted and it has some other issues.
I really like the look of the teensy bias binding instead of a facing. Do you have a preference?
The back keyhole tie is one of my favorite features.
You have to stand funny to make these types of dresses flattering, unfortunately. I think that is
why people shy away from this style. You don't want to look pregnant if you are not? I can't imagine why.
Wonky collar, (my fault) but it should extend all the way to the back at least..
Also it could lie a bit flatter.
I would love your feedback though, is this a style that you would be at all interested in making?
Also, Chuleen over at CSews, nominated me for a Liebster award, I will give that some
attention very soon!
