A Button-Tab Shift Dress
Guess what? I’m patterning and sewing again! I downloaded the Basic Bodice Sloper from http://www.burdastyle.com, warned Teo about the oncoming mess, and got out my roll of paper, tape, ruler, and scissors. The patterning came back pretty easily and I was buried deep in productivity and satisfaction.
A few days later, I had finished my dress! There is no zipper closure so you just pull it over your head and fasten the button-tabs closed at the waist. Oh, and it has pockets! Now its not perfect, as it was a rush-job and my first attempt at patterning in years but I’m quite pleased with the outer result (just don’t look inside!).
I hope to maybe refine the pattern and either make more to sell or sell the pattern itself. Still toying with ideas. I’ve worn the dress out twice and its very comfortable and wearable. I’m quite pleased and am definitely hoping to get sewing more. Make more clothes!
