We all went to Fabricville and drove poor Anthony at the cutting tables (I love that guy) crazy , but when we left we had fabric for all.
My first sister Pauline is an artist and needed a dress for an afternoon art opening. She decided on New Look 6000 after trying on my version.Luckily, we're close to the same size so I was able to put this dress together without too much struggle.I made it to be snug on me and it fit Pauline very well.
Not much to say about this one. It's View B minus the collar. Here's a close-up of the side pleating.
I absolutely could not get the neck facing to stop peeping out regardless of careful understitching. I finally had to do ,what in my mind is a no-no, and stitch it down.
I wanted to use a photo of my sister at the art show but I forgot my camera so luckily I had taken some here before we left.She loves her dress and it fits her very well. Pauline has always been known as the pretty one in our family and I think she looks great.
Come back next week for my sister #2's dress.
More later from
