THE BLACK AND YELLOW DRESS


So I got around making that yellow-with-black-lae stretchy dress I was having a hard time upon deciding which cut to got for! And, in the end I ended up with ...

... option C, which was the one with the widest hem! Also the ones that got the most votes, although to be honest that did not help as much as the other options got their fair share of support too. The fabric however turned out to be thinner than I remembered which shut the slim A-option out. Then I was too lazy and too much in a hurry (tried to make this one morning before Dag woke up) to cut it in two parts, top and skirt, so went for the mid-version B as it could be made faster. But it did not turn out that well, so later I cut the dress in two and put on a new skirt; a 3/4 circle skirt which consist of two parts in order to have pockets in the side.

I will need to make a new set of pockets for this on however, the ones I did now don't work that well and look like, how should I put it -dressginas . Who ever knew fabric could look so, um, anatomic?

So what do we learn from this? Nothing I already didn't know; rushing with things often makes them take longer time...

Well you look very gorgeous nevertheless, even if you do have to redo the pockets! I sewed a set of pockets in one dress closed, and cut them out, as they just didn't work with the thin (70s) polyester fabric.

It looks rather good! Last time I was rushing with the sewingmachine I wanted to make a skirt for a little girl (new to me, other measurements!) and on my new serger (I was so happy with my serger that I wanted to serge everything with it). Fortunatly she is very petit and her mom gave the measurements on the large side... Oh and I opted to make a pillowcase before the skirt (which needed some handstitching, so I was wasting my time on that thing instead of making a prrrretty skirt. So now I don't sew when P is around ánd when I have the time... Good luck with the pockets!
