sewing session with my sister

Added Jul 29, 2008

by fashion1

Dresden, Germany






my sister make holidays here in dresden and we had time to sew with each other. I serge the pattern pieces together and she stitch and sewed the elastic band on the dresses. what a great divison of work – we´re finished after a few hours!

instead to use a zipper we made the pattern pieces larger and added elastic band under the bust so that she can pull it easily over her head.

and now she have two new summer dresses for the heat days – yippie ;P

Material Notes

the pink one is some kind of stretchy material

the orange/brown one is like silk





again burda pattern 8071

    The dress looks lovely on your sister. And it’s nice to see your tomates getting redder at every pic!

    I love the fabrics you used and the dresses look so cool and comfortable! I tried to teach my sister to sew once…it didn’t go so well. She says that she likes the “sweet urban garden” in your photos—I think she’s referring to the tomatoes.

    The pattern on both materials is so pretty. You are lucky to have a sewing sister.

    Its beautiful. Your sister looks gorgeous. I love your idea of replacing the zipper with elastic. I like dresses you can slip on better too.

    Such a great relationship you and your sister have. You guys did a great job on those two dresses. She looks pretty in both.
