Yay me! I finished another dress, and just in time for the beach! (since I bought the fabric especially for its “beachy” look)
This time it was my first attempt making Sewaholic’s Lonsdale Dress.
The fabric is Michael Miller’s “Shore Thing Kelp” in green.
I have to say, I love that whole collection.
I am really, really happy with how it turned out.
I only had two problems when putting the dress together: the zipper was faulty and broke after I installed it completely. There were a lot of curse words. I then pulled it out and put in a new one. This time I was pissed off, though, so I did a sloppier job and therefor you can see the zipper this time. Whereas the broken zipper had been sewn in beautifully. Of course.
Then, when I was working on the hem I busted a needle on my serger. Totally my fault, but still. Very frustrating. Lesson: don’t sew while pissed off.
This dress is coming to the beach with me this weekend, for sure!
