Flutter dress – under construction

Yes the flutter dress is under construction. I’ve almost completed the top (have to add the sleeve facings), the skirt is largely finished (I opted to have an A-line shape to the skirt with soft pleats replacing the darts for shaping). Remember the self tie idea from my last post? I think I’m going to abandon that and just add a smart belt to finish the look. All that’s needed is attaching the top and skirt together before adding the zip (I’m putting in an invisible zip) and hand finishing.

So far this dress has been an easy sew. I’m looking forward to finishing the flutter dress and showing you the end result in the not too distant future.

Meridian dress – construction

Yes I have started to construct this dress. At the time of writing this, I have the front + back panels complete and ready for the invisible zip. Then all that’s left to do is close up the sides, set in the sleeves, hemming + hand sewing back closure.

I’m very pleased with how this dress has been put together. This is the first time that I’ve used a Papercut pattern and the instructions are simple and straight forward to follow. They also have online tutorials on their website to assist sewers with construction dilemmas.
