good luck nofury the best tip for you would be to have patience and lots of it and a seam ripper is probably good too Cheesy

I love both of these dresses!  I would love to be able to make something like this.  What kind of fabric is everyone using?  I am not very good at picking out fabrics.

I'm attempting the third one, it doesn't look too difficult (famous last words.) No pattern, I'll just figure it out as I go along.  I'm using stretch fabrics, because I always do. I cut out the basic jumper shape out of some navy fabric last night. The lighter blue fabric you see at the top of the photo is what I'll be using for the collar and sleeves.

I have a question, does anyone have any idea of what the collar should look like in the back?

I think I am going to try just plain old broadcloth (2.48/m) unless I can find something cheaper at the wallmart thats still nice and light for the summer.

if i was making the 3rd picture, the dress, i would make the collar in 2 sections (so 2 pattern pieces- 1) the front piece cut twice to line, 2) the back piece, cut 4 times to line) & line up the back as a straight line with the back zip, if that makes sense

you could of course also curve it at the back to match the curves where both collar pieces join together, depends how neat your zips are! (as in a straight edge hides the zip a bit more)

*** have sketched what i mean if thats any easier for anyone?

other than that its a very simple dress shape, shouldnt give any one too many problems

for thre middle dress, i will possibly use a black & white or black & pink polka dot for the main, with a matching solid colour for the band (not doing the bottom band, i am only 4ft 11, that would make me look even shorter!)

hopefully this will work, my scanners dead



cut one of the front collar, on the fold, in main material, then one on the fold from lining, also interface it

cut two of the back pieces from main material, two from lining, & interface them both


obviously none of these sketches are to scale!
