LAFS: The Megan Dress – Update

 

Last Post <<

I was able to get the top and bottom sewn together for the Megan dress:

It looks super big and it’s not pressed.  But the back is not yet sewn together so it’s falling open.

Here’s what it will grow up to be.

 

I think I want to put pockets on it.  But I can do that when the dress is done.  I’m ready for my next class…

LAFS: The Megan Dress

I got this book eons ago. I can’t remember when. One of my favorite podcasts at that time mentioned it and I jumped on Amazon and bought it. One of my goals some year(s) ago was to work my way through this book. I got through the first few patterns up to the skirt featured in the above picture and learned how to put in an invisible zipper.  The skirt ended up a bit too big and I should have gone down a size but I didn’t ever do it again. I really should because it turned out super cute.

 

 

I stalled out because the next pattern was the Megan Dress:

And it was a bit overwhelming for me.  At my sewing class last Sunday, I already had traced the pattern onto fabric, cut all the pieces, and transferred all the registration marks.  I learned at the class how to sew darts and I started putting the pieces together.  I got all the way to the point where I pinned the top to the bottom but didn’t actually have time to sew it all.  I hope to do that some time in the next two weeks before the next class. And, I hope I’m able to take a picture for you.
