Bury St. Edmunds...
This dress claimed to be an easy-to-make, one-hour sort of job. I suppose it speaks volumes about me then, that I took five!
I think the jersey fabric caused a lot of the problems, mainly because my slightly dodgy sewing machine decided that said jersey could only be stitched with the tension on the highest setting. Also, the pattern came out HUGE. I made it in a UK 12/EU 40 and needed to take it in by 4 inches.
This is the thing I am least proud of having sewn to date. However, it was always supposed to be a fuctional, comforting sort of dress, rather than one to go out in and in that respect it really serves its purpose. I have never worn a softer fabric and I am sure that had I made the correct size to begin with that the heavy knit would hang beautifully.
The world’s softest jersey.
