Sewing a dress for church
In September this year students in my fashion design class are supposed to start sewing actual garments, so I usually sew stuff for practice (my stitches can look like a frolicking grasshopper). I made a simple dress for Easter Sunday service, process photos are placed below.
My fabrics: kiana, stretch cotton(?), a type of embroidered linen, chiffon and printed polyester cotton.
My patterns are in the photo below:
I cut out the bodice part from the linen. I also cut out an underdress from the kiana fabric. Sleeves were cut out also, as seen in the upper left corner but they were not used:
The chiffon fabric was folded into quarters and cut out to form a circle.
The two parts of the bodice back are sewn together at a line half inch from the edge (The pair of scissors indicates the line).
Photo documentation is missing here because I was busy directing some choice words at the chiffon fabric. The finished outfit :
