Hi everyone !
My cousin is getting married at the end of March and I really wish I could sew the dress I will wear at his wedding. But there are a few problems :
- I am not an experienced seamstress (well, I'm a beginner but if I do it carefully, I'm not a bad sewer I think)
- I have never done a proper garment yet. I practised with pjs and indian clothes for my danse classes, but those are very forgiving on the fit and the quality of the sewing
- I have no idea what to wear at an early spring wedding near Paris ! I suppose the weather will be cool but not cold so I can not wear a beautiful summer dress neither a hot winter dress... (it will not be a very "dressy" wedding, so no evening gowns, only nice dresses)
- I'm not sure what kind of dress to choose for my figure. I'm a hourglass kind of girl but my waist is not very well defined and I'm a little chubby (not sure if the word is right... I'm not fat but I'm not thin either and I could lose 10kg) so I would like to have a dress fitted at the waist.
I looked at some patterns and there were 2 that I particularly liked :
- McCall's 5971
- New Look 6723
What do you think about them ? Are they easy ? Do you have other dresses you could recommend ? (I would love to buy the pattern quickly so I can start as soon as I can because I don't have that much time...)
Thanks to anyone who can help me
