I am having somewhat of a wardrobe crisis at the moment. I need more dresses. Weird I know, because I sew right? So I should have loads, but I have been making a lot of separates lately and recently I have found whenever I go somewhere I really want to wear a dress, and I only have a couple that I am happy wearing. Also, ever since I cut my hair short, I feel like wearing dresses every day. So…let April be the month of the dress!!
I called this “lazy” as due to all the work I did last time on the fit, all I had to do this time was cut and sew, no fussing around with fitting! I love that!!
The fabric is a textured cotton sateen bought from Chic Fabrics on last year’s trip to NYC. It is reasonably thick and so didn’t require lining. As is pretty normal for me, I used bias binding to face the armholes and neckline. No special techniques on the make, just super straight forward, no fancy seams or hemming and all on the machine – see, told you it was lazy!
Easter has come and gone and so Summer is supposed to be officially over. We are still getting pretty warm days so hopefully I can wear this a few more times before winter sets in.
Next on the agenda some trans-seasonal pieces and to finalise (read: make) what I am wearing to Sewcietea next weekend!!
