The Couture Dress »
InstructionsWhen you cut out the pattern, have the fabric with the right side in. That way you can transfer the sewing lines on the "wrong" side of the fabric. This dress is not lined because the fabric is a very heavy denim.

What was your inspiration?
What are you most proud of?
The collar! I made a collar out of paper and played with a design. I used a reverse facing technique and tacked the collar from inside the dress. With this pattern, I can add a yoke, change collars, change sleeves, and if you have any other ideas for changes, just let me know!!!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This mater pattern A line dress is not difficult since it is not lined. It took about a day to make. Even though it is simple, pay attention to details--matching seams, tacking, and seam finishes. Taking the course was the best thing I ever did for my sewing skills and sewing confidence.
