Sew Along Update - Finished Dress!



Top of the morning to you all! Hope you had a great night? So as I told you on my last sew along post, I'll be posting the frontal and back views of my finished clipper dress. Remember all that was left was fixing the zipper, underlining, and joining bodice to skirt right?

Something Old, Something New.

So I had this clock for a while now, er quite a while cos I remember getting it around my freshman year so it has beeeeeeeen a while! Ok, and after many battery changes and all and probably getting better and more interesting clocks, I kept it tucked away until recently when I stumbled across it and thought to make it more useful to me.



I got some ankara fabric, and here's what I did - mostly, I got around doing this tutorial out of curiosity :-)

Sew Along Update.

Why do I feel like a student coming in late to class, walking face down as she searches for a seat?? Hmm,..... Ok so had a lil trip...now I'm back.... and also somewhere in between getting settled and tydying up work issues, I managed to get some of my guilty pleasures...FaBRICS! Would be sharing those with you Fabric Friday although I also got some new stock for TSN fabric Storeso be sure to kelp checking there as I'll upload anytime now. You might be wondering, would I ever get to sew all these fabrics and would you ever get to see my creations eh? Well you'll have to keep those fingers crossed cos I got surprises for ya!
Now, in my last sew along post I concluded with the skirt and that means we tackle the lapel next yeah?
- You spread out your bodice (you ought to have joined front bodice to back bodice at this point), measure center to center.
