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.
This week’s video was all about the skirt. I traced the pattern onto my fabric using white wax tracing paper. If you squint at the photo above, you can just see the dotted lines (and huge seam allowances that I left for now). Though Gertie discusses different skirt options, I chose to make the sarong skirt that’s part of the actual BurdaStyle pattern, minus the little extra poof at the hip.
Also, take a look at how this dress fits this model. On her the little space in between the bra cups is definitely not sitting flush. Maybe her dress is not “perfectly fitted”, but at least this image suggests that anything goes, right?
