Description

I set myself a challenge which is to sew a garment every week for 3 months.
This is the dress I made last week ( the first week of the challenge). The fabric is Jersey and the pattern is from BWOF 4/2009.
After cutting the fabric, I realised that I made a mistake! I didn’t cut the front skirt on fold, and ended up with a seam in front!
I like to think that it is not much noticable :)

    Has anyone ever found this pattern, except in the magazine which is out of print?

    Looks good. I wouldn’t have noticed the seem at the front if you hadn’t mentioned it. How do you make your hems nice and flat using jersey? I am trying to hem a dress I made and its so uneven and stretched. Good luck with your challenge – sounds like fun.

      Thanks. Mashine sewing hems on Jersey is very tricky. therefore, I hand sewn the hem :)
