This August I’m sewing along with Tasia at Sewaholic.net. A bunch of other talented seamsters and I are all making her just-released Lonsdale dress, which happens to also be a summer essential – happy day! Here’s a reflection on my efforts to sew well.
After reading about all of the fitting that Sunni of A Fashionable Stitch had to do for the bodice of her Lonsdale dress, I decided to make a muslin of the bodice for my own Lonsdale. I have just enough of the teal Japanese cotton to make up this dress, so I can’t afford an unfortunate cut. Every inch matters. Seriously.
I’m happy to say that the trial bodice fits like a glove. No alterations needed, which means… Hello, gorgeous teal, nice to meet you.
