Bay Area, Califo...
I haven’t touched my sewing machine in a couple of weeks. ):
To satisfy my lack of sewing, I took pictures of a Peter Pan collared dress I sewed last March for Easter. It was my first dress I made so unfortunately, I didn’t include a zipper (which makes it almost impossible to take off). I used my self-drafted bodice pattern and a full circle skirt (with pockets!).
I still haven’t finished it completely. I need to re-fit the top since I made a size too big. And there is also a casing, on the inside waistline for the elastic, that needs to be closed up. Soon…
ps: I also blogged the same thing about it here.
Pattern of the Week
You’ll want to wear this dress to tiki parties, spring weddings, and afternoon dates...
