Summer dress


 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I had to patternmake and sew this for a tafe project. It’s a design from the forecasted Spring/Summer range for 2014 on stylesight.com (a fashion forecaseting website). Although the fabric reminds me of grandmas cushion covers it has a bohemian feel to it which is why i chose it. When i tried it on, the gathers right on the waistline make me look like i had a big tummy >.<
It’s fully lined so I was at  the machine for a whole day surounded by a sea of red fabric. Being cotton it was pretty easy to sew but unfortunately going to fashion school doesn’t make you a good sewer! Only perfect practice does. My practice however is slap happy.
