Actually, I bought several different fabrics from this line. Today seemed like a perfect day to use up a meter from one of the designs for the Oliver + S Seashore Sundress. It's size 3.
Now for the notes to myself so I can bang out a few more of these sundresses using some shortcuts.
First, iron on the interfacing pieces and edge finish the front and back facings (pc# 1 & 2).
Next, add piping to the pocket edge (pc# 3), down the sides front panel (pc# 6) and back panel (pc# 7).
NOTE: end the piping just a hair longer than 5/8" from the bottom edge of the front panel. A 5/8" hem is turned up and this allows for easier folding/ironing/stitching later.
Construct pocket as per instructions and trim the inside of the pocket/piping edge and iron.
Stitch in place pc# 8 pocket over pc# 9 and pc#3 and edge finish.
Gather the pocket/front ruffle section (above photo) and the back ruffle (pc#4) using zig-zag over crochet cotton.
Do it on the wrong side of the fabric.
Gather and pin pocket/front ruffle sections to front side panels (pc# 5) and gently pull out the crochet gathering thread while stitching.
Attach the 2 front side panels to the front panel (pc#6), edge finish the seams.
Then put piping along the top edge.
Attach the front facing (pc#1) and trim the seam allowance.
Turn and press.
Attach the back side panels to the back panel (pc# 7) and edge finish seam allowances.
Then attach back ruffle (pc# 4) to those 3 pieces and edge finish.
Then attach back facing (pc #2) and trim seams.
Attach the front section to the back section. When edge finishing the side seams, begin at least 5/8" down and trim away excess piping to eliminate bulk from under arm.
Hand stitch facings to side seams.
Baste 5/8" hem and fold and press along that line.
Fold in raw edge to meet basting stitches creating a hem.
Spend 2 hours looking for appropriate coloured buttons and then give up because you only have 1 of each ... arrrrgh.
Pattern works up quickly and fits perfectly. And the fabric shown on the cover of this envelope goes on sale in 2 weeks.
Just what I need. More fabric!
