Total cost $59.60 – I had to buy some more thread – although if I use the pattern again, that cost will go down slightly.
I’m wearing it to work today and getting lots of nice comments.
So here’s how it turned out in pictures…
It’s not perfect but for my first dress I’m quite happy with it. It fits really well.
I used that hemming tape – it’s like double sided iron on interfacing – so easy. And I might go back and use it around the neck line to hold the lining in place.
The pattern (Burda 7854) though a little fiddly was easy to follow and when I was patient enough to baste first and do all the right things I didn’t have to unpick… there was a bit of unpicking!
Anyway now that’s over I have three work dresses in my wardrobe (two to go) and time to follow up on my HASAY exercise which has sadly fallen by the wayside a bit with the birthday and all…
By the way – for all HASAY members who work – I’ve got a great idea to share with you so come back soon!
