this week is somehow a little chaotic, but I did not forget my tutorials and (2 days late) here are the next steps for the hippie dress #122 burda 6/15. The first steps can be found here: pattern, cutting
I started with sewing between the markings with very wide stitching
then checked the measurement, the pattern suggested
now I cut 2cm wide stripes of the leftover fabric, I used the unprinted sides
then I pinned a fabric-strip to the ruffles, and did that to both back-parts and both front parts, then sewed the strips onto the ruffles
next I pinned the centre back seam, carefully matching the print at the parts where it is not ruffled
and the side parts to the front side seam: marking to marking
also pinned the shoulder seams of the facings
and I pinned the sleeve-seams
then sewed the pinned seams with the stretch-stitch of my sewing machine.
at the side parts
I cut into the front part until that last stitch
and pinned the sleeve part of the front to the side part
looks like this
also sewed my sleeve seams and shoulder seams
when I sewed that end of the side part on I was careful that the seams start and end in the same point, so there will not be any holes
then I pinned the side part marking to marking onto the back part
and the whole side seam down, then sewed the side seams
cut into the back part and pinned the rest of the side seam and sewed
my dress so far, still open in the front.
Do you have any questions about this so far? Do not hesitate to ask!
Next week I will do the facing and close the centre front.
Do you like my fabric? You can get your own here. There are also more color options.
keep sewing and smiling
