So here is another garment from Gertie’s new book for better sewing. This time it is something! It fits great, it is lovely and I can’t wait  for spring! I hope my dress will make the snow melt down! :)

So, here is one of my..uhm..fiasco..

I thought it will turn out well, but it did not. At first, I don’t know but the neck line is really small, it is to tight. Second is the back closing :D As you can see, I can’t sew buttons properly and that is probably why it is so crooked and not matching :D

I will try to cut the neckline again and bigger and repair the buttons. Maybe it will be good but I think white color is not my cup of tea…:/

I have been watching this site for a while and as a New Year’s resolution, I decided to make a post here. So here it is.

I made my own pattern for this dress, it is very easy pattern, just two darts and that is all.  Hardest part was to sew in the lining, because I didn’t want any visible seams around armholes (hope you understand what I mean :) ) So it was bit stressfull for me, but I did it! Do you have any idea how to make it easily and whithout swearing?
