I will wear it in Public - Garment Sewing Challenge
I am participating in another challenge being held by the fabulous Rikka of Ricochet and Away. It's the 'I will wear it in Public' Garment sewing challenge, just quietly I am packing it!
Never having sewn any item of clothing before, let alone used a proper pattern I feel this will be a massive learning curve. Knowing that I am way out of my depth I figured I had better get a start on my project now so as not to fall short as I did on the previous challenge when I failed to complete my entry in time. Today I headed in to Spotlight today to peruse their patterns. Sticking to the Easy category obviously.
I really loved the dress in the top left corner of the top left picture and got really excited because it was especially for beginners like me!!! Unfortunately when I got to the filing cabinet there was no 2147 left :( so back to the books I went.... After much page turning I decided upon this pattern
and as luck would have it, they actually had it!!! I also found some pretty patterned voile to use
So I'm set to get started.
Any words of wisdom before I delve into unfamiliar territory???
Hope all are having a fantastical Friday
