Project

Butterick B5559

What are you most proud of? I love the finished dress and felt really good in it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Definitely buy yourself a walking foot, I did and it was worth every penny, and investigate your machine to see if it has a triple stitch that allows the fabric to stretch without any thread breakages. Make sure to iron at each stage.

Wow! Stunning!
NellyJane answered:
Thank you x
Davesmom asked:
Your looks great and what a lovely jacket to go with it. Is the jacket a stretch knit as well?
NellyJane answered:
No, the jacket isn't stretch and is a bought jacket. I only made the dress but they go together quite well. Thanks you for your nice comment.
