Project started for 3rd piece in the Make Nine Challenge. Raided my fabric, notions and pattern stash (as per my own requirement to participate).
This is the first fitted dress I’ve made in quite a while. It’s exciting but nerve-wracking.
Lovely strange fabric from @moodfabrics. Lacked yardage for the bodice lining. So one quick trip to @joannstores yielded a Swiss dot (not shown)... plus something extra fun for a spontaneous detail on this #voguesewingpattern
Total spend for the challenge to date = $21
(Had a snafu with Make No. 2. Waiting for a genius idea 🧐, so it’s still in the queue). It might happen if I just keep sewing!
First project on my new sewing machine! Decided I needed a summer hat and couldn't find one to fit, so made one instead. Found the sewing pattern in a charity shop for 10p- bargain! The brim is wider at the front than the back, which was a bit confusing as I'd not made a hat before and there were no views of the back. I made it from some upholstery fabric and lined it with calico.
4th pic is a close up of the neatest finishing I think I've ever done- this machine handles 4 layers of upholstery fabric like a dream- so pleased with it!
Vogue 9314's first page of instructions is correct up to step 6 but when the page is turned over it continues with instructions starting at 11 for Vogue 9310. The Betches have never seen the likes of this mistake before and notified Vogue of their error. Who needs correct instructions anyway?! #v9314#mcallpatterncompany#voguesewingpattern#v9310
Here is the second pattern I didn’t use, so is also up for #greatbigpatternswap
This is also, an original Vintage design for Vogue from the year 1960 the sizes are 6-14 inclusive and this is coded A5 but again, I’m not sure what this means. If you swipe to the left, you can see the back of the pattern with all the details on.
I am happy to post this anywhere in the UK and Southern Ireland.
The first person to request it, will get the pattern.
Thanks again to @the.polka.dot.palace @thezipperfoot for arranging this wonderful idea. .
In the mood to make a floral jersey dress to wear for tomorrow’s special Mother’s Day Event with these beautiful women ( swipe for event photo ). Taking my mom! @myrkadellanos @rosieriveraoficial #voguesewingpattern#sewing#costura
