gathering my courage to visit jersey once more

I’ve made 3 things so far in jersey. Knickers, a dressing gown and t-shirt. The knickers were a nice easy project, the dressing gown was a “challenge” when adding a zip closure and the t-shirt was one of my few failures in terms of getting the fit right.

The following dress has helped restore some of interest in jersey fabric, and it is a lovely design too. Welcome to Vogue 8728, a vintage style dress but in jersey you can skip the zip if you have enough stretch. It required a fair bit of gathering, but was well worth it.

So, without further ado, here it is. Alas the weather is turning quite autumnal so this may be waiting in the closet until next year before it gets much wear.


Note to self. Do not just check front image in mirror before taking photos. Also check back as well. Ah well…

A few years ago I signed up for a year long beginner's dressmaking course. I have never looked back and am always thinking about my next project, hence the sew where next? name. This blog is to try and keep track of my trials, tribulations and hopefully successful projects.
