Have you heard of Project Sewn?? It's an online sewing competition where bloggers sew to compete. There are 6 official contestants but readers are allowed to play along. This weeks category was the Little Black Dress.Coffee Date Dress pattern on the Burda Style website.
It is meant to be made with a woven fabric but I took a risk and sewed it in a polyester knit and it worked! I cut the size for my bust measurement and omitted the zipper, which meant I could cut the back skirt and bodice on the fold. I chose a medium weight plain polyester for the top and a slightly heavier weight for the skirt. I really like the subtle lines on the skirt fabric.
purple shirt and taking out some of the"puff". I'm not sure I got the ruffle just right but oh well.
Next week's is "The Era Challenge". Hmmm still thinking on that one.
Over and out!
