This week, I'm feverishly working on the dress for my son's wedding on Aug.1st.. If you remember,a few weeks ago,I said I was using Vogue 1182.
So far,I've altered the pattern,( an FBA and a sway back adjustment),I made a mock-up,raised the neckline about 3/4 of an inch,and have cut the dress and have put it together enough to know that it's a good fit and I love it.When I finish it, I'll give you a few details about the alterations I made. Hopefully,I'll help someone else with this rather difficult pattern.
Tonight,I thought I'd show you a new version of V1109 by Sandra Betzina which I made back in May and never got around to posting it. .
This time I used a cotton knit denim which was advertised as "leggings knit denim" It is a substantial weight but not too heavy for this style.
Although it doesn't show up well in the photos,I sewed double rows of red top stitching to outline all the seams using a double needle to maintain the stretch of the garment..
I cut a size D this time because when I made this version,I found it to be a little too form fitting.
I think my favorite part of this top is the sleeve.I love the way they look and feel when I'm wearing it.
Here it is and for once I managed to end up with a photo that shows the colour well.
Here I have it on with the white denim skirt from my last post but I have to say,it's much too hot to dress like this right now.
I hope you are all having a great weekend so far, and please check back with me in a few days and I'll show you my mother-of-the-groom dress.
