I bought a new sewing machine a couple months ago, and since then have been sewing regularly, but I keep forgetting to take photos and put them up here. I will try to be better!
One of my latest completed projects is this floral spring dress.
I drafted the pattern myself, but I'd definitely change a few things now that it's completed. I will add more negative ease for this type of fabric (a floral print fairly thin jersey knit) because I really had to take it in a few times, and I had to put in a bust dart! and I don't love the gathers at the front (from the side they kind of poof out, and I prefer a smoother silhouette).
Overall, though, I'm happy with the result. I like the longish, loose sleeves and I love the print. What do you think?
I also used the leftover fabric from the dress to make a scoop-neck tee shirt, which I love. No darts needed this time, since I learned my lesson about negative ease when making the dress!
