Welcome to finish it up Friday!
I recently did some garment sewing and I'm happy to report that I finished two more dresses! These are becoming a staple in my wardrobe and I'm very happy about that! (You can see version 1 here, version 2 here and version 3 is at the end of this post.)
Washi Dress and it's by Made by Rae. I can't recommend it enough! I'm very lucky to be able to sew up a size medium with no adjustments whatsoever, and it fits me perfectly. I realize that's rare...thus multiple dresses with the same pattern!
The fabric for dress #4 is Chambray Union Indigo by Robert Kaufman, which I purchased here. It's really lovely for a garment!
I think my favorite part of constructing the dress is sewing the shirring on the back, which is made by sewing with elastic thread. I was so afraid of doing that part the first time, but it's like magic, I tell you. It's so satisfying.
geranium dress (similar pattern, but for girls) for my daughter last spring, but I haven't made her one yet. I think that's next on the garment sewing list! She's excited about it and I am, too.
Do you sew garments at all? If so, what are some of your go-to patterns? I'd love to hear about it in the comments!
Now it's your turn! Please link up your finishes for the week. Thanks for joining me for finish it up Friday!
