Finally I have pictures with the red denim dress!
The pattern is from La Mia Boutique, and although it is made out of 10s of pieces and I do not understand Italian, it was fairly easy to assemble, but required a lot of time.
Every stitch has been iron pressed and I added two parallel top-stitches in bright red thread to finish the denim feel for this dress.
I love wearing this at work, I think it is great for summer, being sleeveless and it also can be worn maybe with boots and a form fitting long sleeve blouse under during cooler temps.
I always buy a little extra fabric especially when there are bias pieces, somehow I cannot compute how much I need.
This time I managed to sew a mini skirt, a hat and a belt out of the leftovers! Tonight I am hemming the skirt and I can;t wait to post about it. The hat and belt are still in the making.
I have taken many photos of the sewing process, and I plan on posting small how tos about darts, jeans pockets, shirt collars…soon.
