Well hellloooooo there!
I feel like I've been gone for a while but it's only been a week lol
Last week I was celebrating my Birthday so I was too excited to sit down and write posts lol smh
I went to the Dominican Republic for my birthday and I will be sharing that experience in due time :-)
If you want a sneak peek, you can check out my instagram!
This is Kwik Sew 3633 View B
All of the Kwik Sew patterns I have made sew up super fast so there isn't that much to say about them construction wise.
The leopard fabric is scraps I had from this project.
The green fabric I got at JoAnn's on clearance
and the black fabric I don't remember where I got it from. But I have so much of it which is weird lol
This is the first time I block interfaced fabric.
I did it because the facings were so tiny
I used my serger to make up the entire dress aside from the sleeves.
I sewed the sleeves in flat and then serged the sides.
I've noticed that the Kwik Sew patterns aren't really made well to fit.
and it's a little weird to me because they're the most expensive on sale compared to the other commercial patterns lol
Anyway. This looked like a tent on me at first make up.
I decided to cut off the serged sides on the green color block because that is where my waist is.
Then I serged again. Only on the green.
I actually had to do it twice. That's how big it was.
I stopped at twice because I didn't want the dress to be super fitted but I didn't want to lose the LITTLE shape that I have.
I have such a stick figure, it's easy for me to get lost in fabric without some type of curve built in lol
I was going to do the same thing for the dress hem but after I serged, I really liked how it looked.. and felt, so I left it.
This dress, though, is SUPER comfortable!
It felt like I was wearing a nightgown at work lool
Who doesn't like feeling like they're in pajamas all day?!
I think that's all I have to say about this dress.
Not my favorite but it will still get a lot of wear.
Thanks for reading!
Look out soon for my bday picture dump, oonapalooza things, TMS and PGS!
See you in the next post!
