I got for my birthday the Twinkle Sews book by Wenlan Chia. I loved the dress on the front cover…Next Big Thing…it is labeled as an “ADVANCED” but I figured how hard can it be right? First of all I picked entirely the wrong fabric for it. I had these two sheer woven fabrics that when I layered them together they were no longer sheer. With a lining and the two layers of fabric the dress is entirely to think and has no movement. I had no idea what the instructions were talking about with the front and back side panels or how to do the sleeves so I fudged it and winged it. I winged it wrong and my boobs hardly fit in the dress. I will have to re-try this one again with some linen and some research…
cheep woven sparkly fabric i got on sale at Wal*Mart…might be my first problem there! :)
