This dress, my submission for The Monthly Stitch Frocktober challenge, is the second-most frustrating garment I’ve created to date. It is, to my annoyance, merely the muslin of the dress I wanted to make. It took an entire MONTH to make a muslin! bangs head on wall…
The terrible tale of my toile is posted on my blog for your amusement. You will be amused, because these are seriously novice errors.
Nothing like a few lessons to make you really learn your sewing stuff, though, right?
Despite all the frustration, this dress is very comfortable to wear and I will, eventually, trace a new one and make it up.
Cotton batik, found in Central East Africa. Lovely fabric, wish I had more
