Most of you will know that my favourite dress pattern is the By Hand London Anna dress so it will come as no surprise to you to see that I have made another one! Number 4!
This time I have made it slightly longer, although not quite a maxi-dress so no slits I am afraid. The fabric is from our new gorgeous Gutermann ‘Ring of Roses’ range, I couldn’t decide between these 2 designs so I just used them both! I think I am ready for Spring now so lets hope it comes soon!
This is a beautiful range of fabrics that is great for dressmaking, but would be equally as good for quilting and home furnishings.
My next sewing project is a bit of a secret as I am making the new Sewaholic garment, it is not released until the 13th March so you will have to wait a few days before I reveal it.
What are you making for Spring?
I am really enjoying the Charlotte skirt sewalong, it has made me slow down and take my time making a garment rather then rushing in to it and making loads of silly mistakes. I think this has probably got to be the best waistband I have ever fitted!
I am still to do the blind stitching but I have a long car journey tomorrow so I shall do it then (I am a passenger not the driver!)
As I said in an earlier post, I don’t want to attach a peplum as I think I will wear this skirt a lot without one, but I would like to occasionally wear it with one so I have made a seperate peplum, all I have done is cut out another waistband and attached it to the peplum!
I will put some hooks & eyes on as fasteners and there we are, with or without peplum!
Whoops, that photo is a bit blurred! I will post a better one when I have finished, next step Hemming!
