Well that was an ordeal! I won’t go into all of the details here but the Coles Notes version is that this entire dress was sewn on my 1915 Singer treadle machine. Yep. Treadle. It was definitely a learning experience! If you’re interested in reading about my little island of chaos, you can read about it here.
The outside of the dress turned out well, but the inside resembles a dog’s breakfast. I’m probably exaggerating a little bit but it definitely doesn’t have the neat and tidy seams that I usually obsess over! All in all it’s definitely wearable and I’m really happy with the pattern! I’ll definitely be making it again.
Here’s a close up of the fabric and of the ric rac detailing. The fabric and notions were all from my stash, so I have no idea what the fabric content is, but it’s lovely and soft and has enough stretch to it to allow me to forego the side zip.
It’s been amazing seeing all of your creations and to have the chance to get to know a few of my lovely “Sewalongers.” You ladies amaze me!
