It’s been about two months since I last posted anything on here…but they have been some of the busiest months I have ever experienced! I’ve been trying to set aside time for myself to sew something here and there, even if it’s just small steps to completing a project. These small time increments have fortunately proved to be a success, since I managed to complete two dresses.
The first dress is a vintage cotton, in a sort of oxblood red. It features shoulder darts, an empire waistline, and black cord-ribbon accenting (with black buttons as well). The second dress is made from an organic bamboo rayon jersey. I used a contrasting cream collar and buttons from some vintage broadcloth my grandmother gave me. It was my first time working with jersey and although not as bad as I had anticipated, I did still run into a couple of problems (mainly the stretch-stitch taking forever).
Anyway, feel free to pop on over to my blog, more details and pictures on these dresses here.
Anyone have some tips for how they work with jersey fabrics? I do not own a twin needle or walking foot sadly, but they are on my list to purchase at some point.
