A long-time lurker, I’ve finally decided to contribute something to the community. In fact, you all have inspired me to start my own blog!
B5748 is my second attempt at making a garment, and I’m quite proud of the results. I had a lot of trouble with adding the zipper and hemming the circle skirt. Does anyone have resources that would help me with future projects?
B5748: Green Gingham 50′s Dress
- Size: 6
- Fabric: Sage green gingham fabric
- Lining: Yes
- Notions: Tiny black rosebud for neck detail, grey zipper
- Adjustments: I chose to make the petite version of the bodice included in the pattern and I shortened the skirt.
- Would I recommend it to other sewers? This pattern comes highly recommended by yours truly. I had only sewn one dress before and it was my first time sewing a zipper. The instructions are clear and the pattern is flattering.
