odds and ends

So, today you get to see the result of the endings of the scrap fabric I had left over after cutting out my current dress project. This is, nearly, ready to share. I just have to finalise the bodice and then I can take a photo so you can see the progress. Then its just making the skirt which should be quicker.. Hopefully tomorrow! the bodice is made of 30 pieces so quite a lot of prep and sewing.

The following also took some work, but was a lot simpler. I remade Burda 9422 and also a new pattern The Little Geranium Dress by Made by Rae. I made some design changes to both, by removing the cuffs and pocket decoration and replacing this with binding instead for the jacket, and adding a full lining to the dress. I don’t like fiddly bodice only linings for little projects and as this was made from corduroy I thought it made for a nicer finish.

I’m slowly getting over my buttonhole hang up as these projects had a combination of 6 in total and apart from unpicking one they all went ok. This project has been for a friend’s little baby girl and its nice to get it finished as I imagine she is growing quickly and I need to get them posted pronto so they can be worn.

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.
