Sydney Again., A...
I finally used this fabric after it sitting in my stash box for 4 years. I did use a teeny bit of it for a christening dress bodice. I had wanted to make a dress out of it but saw this pattern and thought it would be good to try.
I made the pattern 3 cm longer in the upper part of the bodice but wish I had made it about 10 cm longer. It sits too hight for my shape/taste.
So much fun to sew with it. lovely delicate fabric.
Sewing time was only about 4 – 5 hours.
It would definitely be too fiddly to do without an overlocker. Rolled hem was fun.
I used a little bit of white bemsilk to do the armhole and neck facing. It made it a little easier and gave more strangth than using the georgette.
I might see if I can sell it as I don’t want it sitting in my cupboard not to be worn.
I’m also going to make one for my mother’s birthday.
I now feel confident enougfh to sew with fine chiffon’s/organza etc.
