Can you believe it I finished my first ever dress and I love it!
The dress is the Upton Dress by Cashmerette and this lovely fabric I bought in one of my favourite craft shops over here, which is sadly not open anymore, you’ll find a lot of my fabric was from there, I was so in love!
Plus it has pockets and every dress needs pockets.
These ones were decent enough to handle not only all the stuff I normally have in my pockets while doing site visits (phone and access card) but they also managed to take my lipstick, a big bottle of hand sterilizer and a camera. Completely and utterly sold!
Overall I was super surprised at how quickly this dress took to make, it was a day cutting and then a day sewing.
As you can see I did nothing special when I sewed it all all, if I start making a lot of my clothing then I will get a serger till then I’m really happy with how it is.
I turned the bottom hem up and sewed over it to give a double edge, hopefully that means that it won’t unravel. I also did the same on the inside lining as I had no clue on what I was supposed to do at all and well you cannot tell from the outside at all.
You also cannot see any raw edges from the outside and I just love it, especially my little top stitching here where I sewed the inside lining to the outside lining.
Looking forward to making my next one and starting to get my wardrobe all together!
Then hopefully once I lose some (ok a lot) of weight I can start sewing my vintage patterns, oh how that thought excites me so much!!
