My sister- in- law, who hasn't worn a dress since she retired twenty plus years ago , wanted a denim dress! I said I would use the new skills I've learned by watching Peggy Sagers' Webcasts to make her one.
I won't tell you that this project was an easy one. I had quite a few challenges to fit dear Doreen but in the end, she was satisfied and pleased with her dress. Here it is
The design is my own. I used various patterns with modifications.
The fabric is an 8 oz. cotton denim. ( I know. That's too heavy but Doreen chose it and I went along knowing it would be too stiff for the flared skirt she wanted). The result isn't bad really.
A few detailed shots.
I had hoped to get a pic of Doreen wearing it but I haven't gotten a chance .I do love seeing people in the garments they wear as I'm sure you do too, but oh well!!
That's it for this week. Happy Sewing from
