current project: maternity dress for sam – finished!

In clothing, maternity on 21 October, 2010 at 8:13 am

here it is, finished and sent off to london. i’m very happy with this, apart from the facing; something went wrong somewhere, and my pattern didn’t fit the garment. weird, and this doesn’t normally happen to me. anyway, i was very short of time, and i know that sam loves me regardless of whether i face her dress or not, so i decided to go with bias binding, which works just fine. it also needed the two rows of top stitching, which i think creates a good late 60s / 70s effect. i put the pink ric rac around the sleeves to create some detail in an otherwise quite plain dress. bonus about the dress is that it has inset pockets. women’s clothes should have pockets if at all possible.
