This dress saved my weekend. It turned it from a ‘boring stay in all weekend’ weekend to a “made a fabulous dress” weekend!!
Pattern: Burda 06/2009, Dress 107
Fabric: Sueded Twill in Navy
$1.95 a yard!!
This dress cost about $6, including the cost of thread. That is madness.
My seam ripper was totally my BFF on this project, mostly for avoidable mistakes made when I was zipping along too quickly.
I am happy with everything, except the finishing on the inside collar. I still need to tuck the raw edge under, but I’m calling her DONE!
Sueded Twill, thread, blood sweat and tears ;0)
