Origami :)

We had a holiday last Monday so sewing classes were cancelled :) I had time to make this pattern (used my own blocks). It has a shirred front panel. I should have placed pockets on this but I ran out of fabric:) so these are just faux pockets. I fortunately found a good fabric that cuts clean so I decided to place raw folded strips of cloth on the shoulders/arm and on the waist. I will probably take off the ones on the waist though, I find it kind of too much…

Material Notes

blue jersey type fabric

    I’ve been trying to contact you, but kept running into grief. So now, I can at least post. Hope to see more of your work, soon. Cordially, Nehmah

    beautiful dress and great fit! I agree with you in maybe taking away the folded strips at the waist.

    Your own pattern! How exciting. I can tell the basic form is solid,. It has a classic shape to it and any adornments you put just adds to it. Love it. Congrats.

    hey I love this dress! good work.. I esp. like what you’ve done with the raw material around the armholes, very clever, and I think it looks good across the waist also!

    thanks! pinkhibiscus: yup the faux pockets go all the way through the hem — lol. But it’s nice just to have a place to put my hands in :)

    nice…I really like the center ruching and the pockets! they are faux but you can put your hands in them?
