I was really lucky to be selected as a pattern tester for The Handmade Dress’ newest dress, Miss Alice. This was really fun to make and I can’t wait for the release of the pattern. I made this one for Emily and it took barely any fabric, yay! I think we’ll be layering it over a long sleeve tee and leggings, it’s cold here baby!
I was really excited because I got to make good use of my serger, it’s so nice. Here’s a detail shot of the inside:
Earlier this week I tried my first Ottobre pattern, a pair of corduroy pants for Emily. I screwed them up majorly. I must not have added the correct seam allowance on the top and I did the applique upside down and on the bottom of the pant leg. I can’t even show the disaster picture because I gave to pants to my mother-in-law to put into the quilt that she’s making for Natalie. Oh well!
Any advice on the Ottobre pants from the Autumn issue? #4 Yogi pants? They are the easiest thing in the whole book, where did I go wrong?
