I'm making a jacket out of 100% wool but it has ALOT of seams and i want it to all lay flat and look nice. But i dont know if I can iron it or if so, what setting to put it on. Our iron goes from 1-6 and 4-6 are "steam" settings (I suppose). What do I do?
I've actually become quite obsessed with swimwear in the past couple weeks. I have around 50 different sketches and I can't help but draw more. I'm hoping to make some of them this summer but I've never made a swimsuit before
I've been looking all over the net for wild new swimwear styles for inspiration. Anyone have any good sites?
This year, my friend had me make her dress from senior prom. She picked out the pattern, fabric, and notions and I sewed it. It's more of a skirt and top but we just called it a dress anyways. It took FOREVER. But she loved it so it was owrth it. The top is boned and fully lined and the skirt has 8 panels that I pressed open and serged each side. So i serged 18 seams on the skirt alone. Which was a pain. But the fabric frayed and I didn't want it to fall apart on her. The straps/sleeves were my own design because she wanted her shoulders to be covered. And there's a really fake diamond trim under the bust but you can't really see it in the pictures. The trim was hand sewed and so was the skirt hem . The whole dress isn't really my style but it's what she wanted and I think it suits her style perfectly.
This was the pattern I used and I did the dress on the model on the left.
