Hello everyone! We’re already starting Project #5. It seems to me that time is moving quickly. We’ve made 3 skirts and a top. Now it’s time to make our first dress. If you are just joining the Sewing Course, please go to the “Learn to Sew” page, begin with Project #1 and progress through the lessons before starting this project. In each lesson you are learning new techniques needed for the next project. For those of you who have been following along, you will also learn several new techniques in this project:
- Sew Princess Seams;
- Apply Neckline & Armhole Facing;
- Sew Back Slit
Create the Look
Plus Size Patterns
To all my plus size sew sisters, I’ve heard your requests. Today’s pattern only goes to a size 24W. I did try to find one with larger sizes, but the options are very limited. If you need a larger size, I’d like to make a suggestion for you. In today’s video I’m referring you all to a certified fit expert. She can teach you how to grade your patterns up to a larger size. Check her out HERE. Hopefully this will help you get the pattern size you need.
The sheath dress is a classic. I think every lady should have at least one in her closet. It can be worn for many occasions. Dress it up with diamonds and pearls and a nice pair of blingy shoes–and you’re ready for any semi-formal event. Throw on a simple suit jacket and a pair of pumps–you’re ready for work. Tie a sheer scarf around your neck, put on a pair of high heel sandals, and a hat with a big bow–you’re ready for the afternoon tea party. Finally, let’s not forget about the special guy in your life. Make him proud to have you by his side by slipping on a killer pair of high heels, some dangling earrings, and a statement necklace. Oh HONEY, then step!
