|Here are some details about my project:|
|Style||Retro / Vintage, Classic|
What materials did you use? Thanks to the fantastic course for sewing with knits....I used a medium weight wool blend double knit. Fabric Steamer - after washing fabric to shrink,Waxed tracing paper, Kia scissors, Flower head pins, Tracing wheel, Stretch Needles, Sewing machine small zig zag stitch, Serger 3 needle matching thread, Walking Foot, Steam Iron, Pressing ham and sleeve board, Polyester matching threads, Clear 1/4 elastic for shoulder and inset seams, Silk contrast thread for basting, (2) 5/8 inch covered button frames, Swarovski crystal buckle, Cover stitch machine with matching thread for hem, Buckram for fabric covered belt, 1/4 " Steam a Seam for belt
What are you most proud of? Once again that it is a knit. That the pattern did not recommend a knit. That I was able to make the flat pattern changes and draft to create a garment that fits and suits my plus size figure.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Please watch the video, take notes, lots of notes. Give yourself the freedom to just give a project a try.....first time or experienced sewers will benefit from the video lessons. I have a review with more of the process details and pictures patternreview.com if you would like to review. http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/readreview.pl?readreview=1&ID=79218 HAVE FUN!
