I haven't blogged for a while - there hasn't been much to blog about! I just finished a couple of jersey dresses for an upcoming warm-weather holiday. Pink isn't a colour I usually wear, but I was inspired by Pantone's colour of the year: Honeysuckle:
I took my time with this dress after sewing the wrong sides together on the first bits I sewed. It's definately easier sewing fabric with obvious right and wrong sides. This one was okay too once I paid a bit more attention. I did one section at a time over a few weeks and sometimes just let it sit for 4 or 5 days. It's one of the first things I've made that actually looks like the pattern envelope (below)!
Here's the back:
Dancing Queen in Fitzroy. She's in a great new space and getting more classes started! I just signed up for a pattern-making course that will start soon. It's best to drop in or ring Lisa if you're interested in classes since they're not on the web site. She's more industry-oriented and full of great advice, tips and tricks geared toward professional sewistas! I find the finish on my garment is ever-so-much better when I get a little helping hand.
