I can’t deal with big time consuming projects anymore so my current sewing strategy is that the quicker and easier it is, the better.
I love the look of faggoting and I’ve wanted to try it out for ages, but I know that I’ll get so bored with that much handstitching, so I made this dress with inserts instead. I think it looks almost as good as the real deal and took a fraction of the time.
I also had my first go at pintucking, which I’m not sure went all that well.
I’m wearing it with a vintage blue lace slip.
