I have finally managed to create a garment that doesn't look like it has been badly handmade!
And it is all thanks to Nicole Vasbinder in her course - Learn to Sew a Shift Dress
What I loved about this course:
Nicole takes you through the garment process step-by-step, I love courses like that! They actually teach me something because I move through the process with the instructor and learn loads along the way!
I must admit that I took it upon myself to not make any shortcuts with this project, to sew and baste and iron when I was told to and to enjoy the process, which I did.
I have, until now never created such incredible looking seams!
Just look at this incredible looking facing!
I would never have achieved that before!
The sleeves turned out really well, as did the darts and I am so impressed with the contrast band - it is like I didn't actually sew this dress!
Deficit about this dress:
Believe it or not, I had just finished ironing it before I took this photo.
As much as it is a deficit, the dress feels amazing to wear - perfect for the weather we are having right now.
I think I will make another shorter version of this dress at a later date.
