Vintage Sewing

Gertie’s bow-tied blouse

By on January 22, 2013

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 😀 As you can see, I can’t sew buttons properly and that is probably why it is so crooked and not matching 😀

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…:/

Polka dot dresss

By on January 9, 2013

Hello,

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?
