The Experimental Dress from a Craft Itch that needs to be scratched (blogged)
I am a still new to garment-making and learning from patterns as I go / went along.
It was part experiment, part overambitious undertaking, but mostly a learning piece.
My objectives for this project were:
1. make sleeves;
2. create a bodice + skirt bottom dress; and
3. use up these 2 pieces of quilting cotton.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
