Clothing Item: A-line jumper dress
Pattern from: http://www.puchicollective.com/sewing-patterns/a-line-jumper/

My attempt at sewing:


great instructions showing you which seam to sew first
with a lining I think it may be very difficult to turn right side out as the shoulder straps are quite narrow

I decided to sew this dress out of a thick felt and therefore did not use a lining fabric
instead I cut away the seam allowances (except on the front pieces side seams)
I only used hand sewing on this dress, which was very unusual for me as I HATE hand sewing but I liked the effect of the embroidery floss stitched on the black felt

*** I will come back and review it for fit once I receive my doll, and add more pictures of her wearing the dress***

thanks Smiley

I was contemplating making it again, but cutting the fabric so that the sides are attached to the back and the the straps could be folded over the shoulders and sewn/snapped in place so they look like dungarees straps?
I can't really explain it too well so I'll try it out and post some pics
