Stretch fabric dress

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I managed to get the front and back pin tucks to match exactly, it took a while but it was worth the fiddle. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Relax and enjoy it, I watched all of the first three sections and the start of the hoodie construction and that gave me the knowledge I needed to start sewing with confidence. Meg is right, it's quite easy once you get going.

What you will need

  • Ponteroma two way stretch fabric. Polyester thread

Hi, the dress looks great on you. Was this pattern from Meg's collection because I didn't notice it on the advertising pic. If not, can you share the pattern co. And the number with us? Thanks!
NellyJane answered:
No, it wasn't one of Meg's patterns but I used Meg's skills to help me work with stretch, knit fabrics for the first time. The pattern is by Butterick and it's number B5559. Good luck!
