Today I am modelling a dress Cris made for her sister-in-law.
Cristiane's Pattern Review:
Fabric: It’s a type of jersey, that it’s a nightmare to sew because it keeps rolling.
Pattern: McCall’s 6308
Notions: Self made bias biding as per pattern, 3mm elastic.
Time to complete: Lost count of how many days
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes. Pretty much.
Were the instructions easy to follow? There were times I had to read the instructions a couple of times, specially on item 18, where the elastic meets the waist. Just didn't add the elastic in the end.
Did you use new skills or a particular skill: No.
Did you make any alterations or modifications?
No, just didn't add the waist elastic.
First worn: July 2012 by Rachel
Wear again? I hope my sister -in-law likes it. If I would do this again for myself, I wont use the same type of jersey. It drove me crazy. If it weren't a gift it would be an UFO.
Thanks Cris, the dress is lovely! I'm sure she will like it.
