Even though I spent all week teaching kiddos to sew, somehow I still wanted to sew for fun on my "off time" (ha, off time, as if). My wardrobe is pretty pared down these days. I really only keep things I truly love and wear. Plus, style is pretty casual where I live. I noticed when getting ready for church last week that a few new dresses were needed, but I want dresses that are casual enough to work for the everyday.
Kwik Sew 4169 paired with a perfect-weight knit I got from Fabric.com recently resulted in my perfect dress! I love it!
When you sew for yourself, you can learn to fix all the little fitting quirks that irritate you about ready to wear. For example, I make a swayback adjustment on everything, a short waist adjustment on many things and often take front armhole darts too. I do these simple things so often that they don't even take me any extra time! I think this is one of the best fitting things I've ever made and it's so comfortable!
Thanks to my 9 year old for taking my photos for me, she did a good job.
I also worked on a chambray sleeveless button down shirt this week! I just need to buy buttons for it. It turned out great and I think it will be super versatile!
But for now, we're on to the next sewing camp!! Can't wait!
Cheers and Happy Sewing!
