Now in my new studio and craft space I was looking for something to start my creative juices. In my stash I had some great red jersey and I wanted to experiment from Nikki's You Sew Girl Book.
This was very easy to make and although I did not have enough length to cover my hips it sits just below my waist. I loved the technique of making a binded hem and used the beginners technique for the armhole binding.
I would certainly make another one but this time get the right length of fabric to sit on my hips. But a great first attempt........you really can't go wrong.
I am making another Jersey dress in this beautiful plum colour. I found a new fabric store at 444 HIgh St, Prahran called Preview. They have many international designer fabrics for sale. I had many jerseys to choose from but this plum colour caught my eye for an autumn/winter dress.
With not much time left before Christmas I am trying to finish this doll. I have been very busy this December so today was a day off watching the cricket and recovering from a hectic time before the next onslaught. I finished her skirt and bodice. Have her boots and underpants to go. It's been a hard slog.
Next time I would redraft the neckline and make it more of a scoop, its a little too high for my liking. I was disappointed in the seam line being in the centre front of the skirt panel. Is ok when its a single colour but with a print it looks a bit odd. It's an easy pattern to make, no zips or armholes.
