Pattern Review is currently running it's first contest for the year, the Little White Dress Contest. I have decided this year to enter this contest. I decided to use a pattern I have already used, New Look 6095, and use some fabric from my stash.
I have enlarged the photo to show you the fabric - I am using up some embroidered crinkle cotton/cheesecloth. I originally bought the fabric to use as a wrap when I had to attend a beach wedding. It has since sat in my stash for at least ten years waiting for inspiration to strike. Well, inspiration didn't strike, but this contest did. I rummaged through the stash and found this - and decided I would make a lightweight summer shift dress out of it. A further rummage unearthed some white voile which I will use as a lining.
This garment will also be my official garment of the month for February for the make a garment a month challenge. It will also be one of my stashbusting garments - I pledged to make a minimum of six garments this year from stash.
This will be quite a tricky garment to make as I will be using french seams for both the outer and inner garment- and how do you french seam a back seam with an invisible zip above it? I'll have to work that out as I go along...
That's it for now,
