Sewing my own clothes, making fabric toys, teaching textiles and drawing with stitch
My biggest dressmaking challenge yet!
January 22, 2019
So this year, in April, we are finally getting married! What a perfect excuse for a special occassion dressmaking challenge..
The thing is, I don't really like wedding dresses in the traditional sense but I would like to make and wear something special. Our celebration will be relatively low key but with most of our friends and family so it will be important to have a decent party dress!
The biggest challenge for me isn't how complicated the construction is, it's more about choosing a pattern shape that feels right and of course selecting great fabrics. I am thinking tea-dress length with a hint of 50s or 60s in style and in the fabric choice. My Pinterest research has lead me to the sort of images below. These will act as my inspiration!
