    Hi and thank you so much for your comment on my dress – it’s even more flattering now that I saw your projects, they are all great!! However, I have very little time right now to look it up and it’s been a while since I made this dress… what’s most important to know: the side seam turns into one of the folds (so the seam is actually not seen from the outside on the bottom part of the skirt, as it’s a pleat). I also realized that it helps to look at the pictures. They don’t describe stuff that you see in pictures, so look at them closely, look what’s right side and wrong side of the fabric etc… I promise to come back and take a longer look at what your difficulties are though, as soon as I get a moment. Happy sewing!

      Thanks for writing me back! I did figure it out by really staring at the pictures and from what you said about how the “side seam turns into one of the folds”. My fabric is all cut out on my table, but now my sewing machine is broken. Hopefully I’ll get it back tomorrow and get to work…

      We would love to have you join us. Our next meeting is next week, Tuesday the 13th of October at 6:30 PM. It is set to happen at the Burdastyle studios unless for some reason it’s not good for them that night and then we’ll do it at my house. I’ll send out details by the weekend. Best, Val

    Hey Brooklynstitch, I’m interested in joining the BK sewing club. I live near Prospect Park. Where does the club meet and how often? (I sent Flowerhead a message too)
