But first the dress

Before I follow-up on jackets I would like to finish my dress on Vogue dress 8648. I was hoping I will have time to follow-up on it being in Poland. Having this pattern tested on my summer dress (you may read more about it here) I know it will go faster now Glimlach

All pattern pieces are transferred on silk organza and stitched on the seam line. Additionally I have marked all notches – the marks were not so good visible, this wax trace paper leaves not so strong lines.

The fabric has a pattern which is better visible on the wrong site.

This mean I will have to watch and match the stripes when placing the silk organza pieces on the fabric.

The days are getting shorter and it means working with artificial light … I don’t like it.
Tomorrow the next step Glimlach

    What fabric did you use for this dress? Thanks!

    • I have just came across my post where I was descriping this fabrik – it consists of Cotton 17%, Polyacryl 4%, Polyester 29% and Viscose 50%. http://wp.me/p2yS5n-3

      (It is called Summer Chanel See Green – it is bland of polyester, viscose and silk (very little).)

    I am also in this Craftsy class! I watched the whole class and was so inspired…. Haven’t started on the dress yet, but will do so in a short while as this is the perfect dress for my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary. I will watch your progress like a hawk!

    • I was enjoying every minut of thin class :-). I have read on somones blog – it was as haveing Susan at home … I fully agree – I like her way of teaching.
      Congratualtions with your parent’s 50th wedding anniversary! It is great opportunity for such couture dress 🙂
