1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How can I attach sleeves to THIS dress? on: July 28, 2007 06:58:51 AM
Hi everybody,

I just started sewing the Azalea dress from Burdastyle:

http://www.burdastyle.com/creation/show/289

here's Crafty_Witch15's version of that same dress

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=180876.0


So here's my problem:
I want to add sleeves. I have a lot if Burda patterns and magazines lying around here. Do you think I can simply take the pattern of a sleeve from another pattern, let's say from a blouse pattern like this?:

Any help would be great!

Hi Maliaka,

there's a Peter Pan Collar Tut here:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=54151.30;

It's not for stretchy material though...I'm not an expert but I'd say there are no big differences in the material used for a collar. But so far I've only sewn a collar out of non-stretchy fabric.

Good luck!

Wow your dress is soo pretty. I'd love to see a tut for the belt!

Oh, that one is beautiful. Very classy but still casual depending on what you wear with it.

Wow, respect for resizing the whole thing! I'm always having such a hard time to adjust patterns.

As far as I can see from the pic the dress looks very well done. How long did it come out?

Oh, and I love the fabric!

Oh, that's cute! I think you can totally go without a belt, but as a variation....why not? I would take a broad white or green one.

I'm not sure what exactly you mean. If your problem is how to read a pattern, try this:

If further questions arise ask them here on the board. And don't forget: There's no such thing as stupid questions. Wink

War heute auf dem hollandischen Stoffmarkt in Dortmund. Da gab's Leinen für 5 €/m an vielen Ständen. Weiß jetzt nicht, ob das für dich billig ist, aber die Auswahl war groß.

Jedenfalls kommt der Stoffmarkt auch nach Frankfurt. Evtl. ist das ja was für dich.

Hier noch der Link:

Sorry, no help from my side, but I'm totally interested in this too! I'm about to make a shirt and would like to transfer the zipper from the back to the side seam.

Anyone out there who has done this?
