Demin dress

Then I finally had some time off. And has done little in weekends as well. Sure… it is taking me longer than you think. You supposed to draw the pattern, cut it out, make sure the pines is fixed properly to the fabric, draw around, cut the material with the seam allowance. And only then can you begin to sew. And it’s not always easy either. Often there will be mistakes and ypu have to rip it up again, indicate the recipe, etc. Now I was a bit brave who chosed difficulty 4 of 6 But I was happy with a bit of a challenge! Have learned along the way. On this I think the back was a little wide, but it happens it shrinks a tiny bit because I didn’t bother to wash the fabric before I sewed * whistle* The most cumbersome of this was the part were the fabric overlapped at the very top, where you have to turn inside out and sew back and behind the row of buttons. Decorations are just drawn on with chalk and sewn in trippel straight stitch. The lower border was a decorative stich on the  sewingmachine but it messed up each time there was a bump in the seam, so it was not perfect, maybe it’s just me who sees it thou. AND thanks to shamu for button and tape trick! It prevented me from a lot of extra work and I got the buttons in exactly the right place. What I did was to chalk up the button hole on one side. Layed the front sides togheter and hit it with my hand over and tadaaa I have the exact same mark on the other side! There, I fixed the buttons with tape and sewed :)  I think it look nice. Now I only have to make matching pants or somthing. Pattern: Norwegian Altomhåndarbeide No. 2 February 08 Borrowed in the Library;)
