This year I’m sewing along with Gertie from Gertie’s New Blog for Better Sewing. A bunch of other talented seamsters and I have joined up through the Craftsy online community to make perfectly fitted bombshell dresses. Here’s a reflection on my efforts to sew well.
Week two, episode two: how to work with digital BurdaStyle patterns.
The pattern for the Sew Retro: Perfect Fit Bombshell Dress class is the BurdaStyle 5/2011 Bustier Dress with Draped Detail. You get the printable pdf pattern with the purchase of the class. It sounds easy enough, but it actually takes quite a bit of space to lay everything out. I cut out each piece as they came together since my little apartment doesn’t allow for the entirety of the pattern to be all laid out together. That said, this week was another easy week as I’d already printed out and taped together the pattern back in the fall. From here on out though it’ll all be new. Let’s hope I can keep up!
