For me, I used New Look 6808. It was a fairly simple pattern and I'd really like to sew it again. It was my first go at facings and sleeves and a regular (non-invisible) zipper.
|Wow, polka-dots! New Look 6808, view B (with a few little tweaks).|
|Little pleats with button accents I added at the neckline.|
For my other "successful" pieces, I sewed the same thing...twice. Does that only count as one, then? Whatever, I sewed two. A pair each for my boyfriend and my grandpa as Christmas presents."What could they be?" you ask. If I said they were separates, would you be surprised? Well, they were. Pajama pants with New Look 6924.
|He would not model them for me, so I was forced to try to arrange them nicely on the carpet. ...Sigh.|
|I added cuffs with contrasting piping and polka-dotted facings.|
Oh, the allure of separates. So manageable, so much faster to complete...but so not a lovely twirly party dress. That attitude is going to change this year, I promise! I will absolutely find manageable and successfully complete a dress project, and that's that. ...I just might need to take a few more baby steps to get there.
