    sketchbook Monday: dress pattern making

    by  • 22 July 2013 • Creativity, Fashion & Shopping, from my notebook • 0 Comments

    I want to make a dress to wear to a friend’s wedding this weekend. Yes. This weekend. In 5 days. I’m not sure I’ll manage, but my sketchbook looks more optimistic.

    I have the fabric, the zip, the matching thread and the dress idea.

    Alas, mother says the (terrible anyway) sewing machine we have here is broken. And, more critically, i do not have a pattern to make the dress with. So here i am exploring designs, taking measurements, and trying to make my first ever pattern from scratch. Well. First ever non-jersey pattern.
