|This Nani Iro sateen is amazing|
This looks like the kind of dress a somewhat experienced sewer could whip up in an afternoon. And if it weren't for my last-minute plan to include a fancy-pants placket then that would have been the case.
Instead, I unpicked, resewed, unpicked, resewed and unpicked and resewed a million and one times until I got it looking reasonable and not just like some dodgy home made job. Luckily the fabric is such great quality you can't even tell I sewed it way too many times. As a result I have received many compliments on this dress.
|Not perfect, but OK I think|
This is a Frankenpattern if ever there was one. The bodice is from the April Rhodes party dress, the skirt from the Christina Hayes Emery and the placket is from Megan Nielsen's
Still. I think it worked out pretty good in the end.
A simple make, but I learned a few new techniques and am glad I pushed myself to try something new. Now I want to make more.
