Sewing Fail! (a dress)

You win some & butcher others!

Nicely executed brown knit top but a loss on the bottom piece -simple combination of some cheap polyester that was probably destined to line chairs + the fact that I still have a lot to learn!

What I used:

  • Brown knit stretch for the top
  • Some beautifully coloured (unfortunately very cheap) polyester- floral
  • thread
  • elastic thread
  • Heart- Magic Man album.


Ivory Lace Blazer/Jacket

I made a Burda Jacket yet broke a few rules as per usual 🙂 I used ivory lace with slight stretch instead of the stretch jersey and I redrafted the facing making it wider. I also opted out of the interfacing as the the type of lace (feels like linen but stretches like cotton) I used provided enough structure.

What I used:

  • Lace (one way slight stretch)
  • Thread
  • Paul Simon’s Graceland album. Brilliant.
