Happy Birthday Monthly Stitchers! One whole year old. To celebrate I have sewn a ‘Frosting’ dress, using fabric that I received as part of Kestrel Makes Spring Sewing Swap. I fell in love with this fabric as soon as I opened the parcel and was looking forward to sewing something up, if a little apprehensive having not sewn with fabric so slippery and slinky as this 100% Polyester Satin. I therefore chose a fairly simple pattern, the free pattern from Prima magazine from May 2014, after having some advice on the Monthly Stitch facebook page a while ago. I managed to produce this lovely dress:
It’s not very clear from this picture, but there is shirring under the bust and at the lower back. I think it looks super sweet in this lovely satin.
I had quite a few trials and tribulations sewing this up which you can read more about in the full post on this dress at my blog. However, all in all I love this dress and it feels divine to wear, although I have to wear a slip underneath it as it produces static and sticks to my legs.
Happy Cake Month again.
