Description

As a thank you for the tons of help my friend Meghan gave me towards my maths GCSE I wanted to make a dress with her, and this was the finished product! We managed to make a muslin of the bodice, and a fully lined dress from 10am-10pm with breaks for lunch and tea which was pretty good going, we thought. Meghan did 95% of the sewing (I did a bit of the hemming) and I instructed, which was good for me because I “consolidated my learning” by passing it onto another human being.

    Great dress for a day’s work! I too have made a dress in a day. It’s certainty do-able, especially if you’ve made it before, know it fits and don’t have cut out the paper pattern or make a muslin. Nice job!

      Thank you! I also find that if I do it all at once I don’t lose interest in the project as I get distracted very easily by new shinier projects.
