Dissaster dress!

I bought this fabric last summer and I stored it for a whole year. I got to sew it this summer and a curse fell on me. I first I cut the pieces wrong and I didnt have enough fabric to make it right. I managed to hide it a bit, but if you know you can tell, then the skirt was huge for me and the upper part just too big, although I drew and cut the correct size!
I got so dissapointed that I stashed the half made dress and forgot it for over a month. Fortunately it fits a friend of mine like a glove, so now it’s a gift dress. And also, fortunately, she can’t tell all the bad sewing that’s on it!
Originaly it was BWR 2/2007 123, I don’t know what it is now…

Material Notes

Jersey, maching tread.




Garment Type
Beach, Bohemian, Casual, Romantic

      Αν δεις το πατρόν και τα κοψίματα που έχω κάνει θα καταλάβεις! Έκοψα δύο δεξιά κομμάτια! Ευχαριστώ πολύ πάντως και η αλήθεια είναι ότι εμείς οι Ελληνίδες σκίζουμε!

    I think that this has happened to us all, having a too big garment despite choosing the correct size according to the measurement chart! I also have to take two sizes smaller than the measurement tells me. After all, your dress doesn’t look like a desaster at all, and if it fits a friend of yours it is at least an acceptable result!

      Thank you. It’s mostly the feeling of dissaster, I wanted so bad to make this dress with this fabric… If you look closer, in both back and front there are some seams that are not supposed to be there, not only according to the pattern but in general too. As I said, fortunately my friend doesn’t know anything about sewing!

      The seams are not so bad – in my eyes they are more of a feature!
