I know I have been MIA for a minute. I have been dealing with life stuff that has kept me away from blogging and sewing. I had a death in the family and was out of town for a week and just plain ol busy in general. I have a few updates to share though.
I met the ladies for tea this weekend at the Mandarin Oriental so I decided to sew me up something to for the occasion.
Fabric used: Brown and pink polka dot cotton.
Complexity of pattern: I used one of my vintage patterns. It was really easy. I think a beginner could handle it with no problem. I did have to do some research on what a placket zipper was. This is a term used on vintage patterns frequently. Basically a lapped zipper is all it is.
How long did it take to complete: 6 hours
Overall Review: I absolutely love how the dress turned out. The pattern was a size 18-36 chest, 30 waist and 39 hips. I could of made it a bit smaller in the waist and hips but it fit good. The darts and pleats in the front really make the dress look nice. It called for shoulder pads but I omitted those. I did the belt a little different as well. I think this dress would be really cute in some gingham fabric so I will put that on my list as tentative.
