Homework Dress

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo B5235 Misses Petite Dress Link to website or photo butterick.mccall.com/b5235-products-7532.php?page_id=678 What are you most proud of? finishing the dress, and learning a bunch of new techniques. Things I learned whilst making this dress: stay-stiching, new lining technique, using a chain stitch to hold lining together, bias tape method from Coletterie. And lastly, but not least, 100% cotton dresses wrinkle a lot. What advice would you give someone starting this project? See my blog posting for details and links to different aspects of the projects... such as DIY seam binding tape http://adriprints.blogspot.com/2011/11/homework-dress.html

What you will need

  • I used 100% cotton
  • but I suggest using something with a little elastic or a blend so it doesn't easily wrinkle after just one wear. Depending on fabric choice
  • this dress could be quite dressy. I wanted an everyday home dress.
