Blue Bird Dress

Project Description

What are you most proud of? It's the first garment I've made for over two years. I have put weight on (28lbs) and can't seem to shift it. I was going to wait until I lost the weight to make the dress, but life is too short. The dress fits me perfectly, after adjustments by me. I have lined the dress fully and changed the construction to fit in with using an overlocker. My new sewing machine and overlocker were both a dream to use on silk, and I will be doing more dressers in future. But a bit longer and without the waist detail! What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is very easy to make and I would recommend anyone to make it.

What you will need

  • Hand painted 100% silk shot taffeta

Corset Claire answered:
Thank you. I have to date now lost 21lbs in weight, so will have to go back and take in the dress!
