Floral Azalea

Added Apr 5, 2008

Sunnyvale, Calif...






Completed my first piece of clothing ever! I’ve started on a few projects but this is the first wearable, finished one. It’s obviously inspired by the Azalea, I took out the underlayer and played up the part at the waist with some ruching /added a belt for the final look.

Just a note: this is completely sewed by hand. I have no idea how to use my mom’s sewing machine (can’t thread it right) so it took a while. Worth it? =)

Material Notes

jersey/knit fabric for the floral print instead of the silk…no underlayer.

    I like this a lot! There was something I ddin’t really like about the Azalea, but I couldn’t put my finger on it… but this has changed my mind! And all handsewn! Wow!

    Respect for the hand-sewing! This is a really nice fabric and perfect for the Azalea!
