sitting pretty – a small preview

I now have the oh so lovely joyful remaining task of hemming of vogue 8743. There is no way on earth I am doing this by hand. I’m off to purchase some bias tape tomorrow to aid me in creating an even fluffier skirt. The lining has helped create a fuller look, hopefully the bias tape will give an extra edge (pun intended).

In the mean time it fits (yay) it looks quite fifties (hooray) and apart from discovering linen rips easily when unpicking causing holes (boo) it has been a pretty good experience overall.

So, here’s a picture to give you an idea of the nearly finished project. Yes, I am officially a bit mad for making a linen dress in the dying rays of summer. But it will be ready for next year!

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.

  1. Ha I also have the same pattern in my stash waiting to be sewn! Will be intrigued to see the full effect pictures and hear what you thought of the pattern.
