My first dress sewn up for another person, a birthday present for my gorgeous friend Iris. Iris is quite petite, so I am quite pleased that my alterations to the pattern worked, we are both very pleased with the fit, yay! However the sleeves were drafted and redrafted THREE times, what a palaver.
And a lot of chiffon was murdered in the creation of the little sleeve hem details, my machine just chewed the hell out of it whenever the fabric was on the bias.
Cotton and chiffon picked out by Iris.
