I am just getting around to posting about my weekend sewing. One of my goals, as i mentioned in my last post, is to work my way through my unfinished projects. Last Sunday I completed the first of those projects, a little dress called Shari from Burdastyle:
The floral print is from the $2.97 table at Gstreet Fabrics. It's a pretty sheer batiste-like cotton, so I lined it with white cotton voile from fabric.com. For the midriff section I used some electric lime linen that my Mom gave me awhile back.
I really liked sewing Shari, and I am happy with the results. The under bust gathers are a nice detail for those of us with smaller busts ;)
The skirt is cut on the bias, so the trickiest part was making sure not to stretch the pieces while stitching them together. And hemming! I always try to remember to hang up bias cut dresses for a day before setting in the hem.
