Pattern: Hawthorn by Colette Patterns
Fabric: 2m of checkered cotton from the Stoffmarkt Holland
Notions: 12 purple buttons and some fusible interfacing
Time to complete: after tracing and cutting out, it actually came together pretty quickly. Maybe 2h for stitching and another three for stitching the button holes, buttons and hemming.
|bound armholes and overlocked facings|
|First attempt at a rolled hem with the rolled hem foot. Pretty, right...? I think I need a lot more practice...|
First worn: Out to an evening at the theater.
Will you make it again? With my track record, I'm petty sure I will. Possibly as a blouse, too.
Will you do anything different next time? Well - do you see how the front of the dress seems shorter than the back? It isn't, really (I used that skirt marker), so it's probably a fit problem. I'm thinking it may have to do with either rounded shoulders or a short upper bust or something. I'm also thinking that this version might need belt loops...
