Here we are, first day of March, and I’m finally sharing my sewing project for February. I finished Thursday night, in the nick of time before the end of the month.
I learned SO much with this dress! The pattern is Simplicity 1609, based on a ’60s pattern, and marked Jiffy- which I imagine it is when you’re not a novice like me. It was pretty basic, but I definitely had to reread steps a few times before understanding them, but hopefully by the end of this year of sewing it will seem easy to me too.
The skills I got to practice with this dress were following pattern markings, darts, facings, a collar, and a zipper- which I took on the extra challenge of doing without a zipper foot thanks to this lady’s helpful video, since I forgot I had broken mine last summer.
My hem could use improvement, which is funny because that’s what I’ve done the most of, and next time I will think about matching the pattern of the fabric, but overall I’m pretty happy with it.
Now it’s time to start brainstorming March’s project and I’m actually considering trying this one out again with some vintage fabric…
