I’ve been bitten by the Sewing Bug!
There are so many gorgeous fabrics out there, and I think it’ll be fantastic if I could make tops from them.
- Pattern: Self drafted (with help)
- Size made: Customised
- Pattern pieces: 3
- Fabric: Quilting cotton (100% cotton), 1m length, bought from Lincraft
- New Techniques: Bias binding, Box pleats
- Modifications: N/A
This is my first attempt:
1.> Make the pattern (this process actually took weeks, and with lots of help, of course)
2.> Cut out master pattern
3.> Choose fabric (advantage of being short: only need 1m of fabric) and cut fabric using pattern
4.> Painful sewing process: aligning, pinning, stitching, unpicking…etc
5.> The not-so-invisible zip
6.> Bias binding (shop bought…) for neckline and sleeves
7.> Inverted pleat sleeve with contrast binding
8.> Finished result :)
This is so much hard work, but given that I’ve now got the master pattern, I can make as many of them as I wish using yummy fabrics!
