This weekend I decided to spend a whole day in front of the sewing machine. The weather was a mix of sunshine and hail , so I wasn't unhappy about spending the day indoors. I managed to make quite a lot of items that were on my To-Sew list.
One of my friends is getting married in a month and of course I need a new dress for that. I haven't sewn a dress for quite a while now and for a long time no dress made out of a woven fabric so I had some fitting issues. I cut out a German 44 but because from the measurement table it seemed that I needed a larger size I added some centimetres on the back and in the side seam. When I first tried it, it was to big so in the end I took in the side seams as much as I added before. Well , I used some fabric which I had in my stash for quite a while now, so I take this dress as a muslin. Next time I'm going to use the pattern as suggested. I still have enough time until the wedding to make a second version. What do you think ? Should I wear this, or make it again ?
In the next days I'll show you the other projects that I made.
