This isn’t exactly a photo of “happy” in the normal sense, but I am really happy to have finished my sewing project for the Oktoberfest fancy dress night.
A while ago I showed you the blouse. I thought it only fair to show you the rest now that I have finished.
After looking at a number of pics on the internet and finding a bit of info on sewing, I managed to get enough courage to cut the fabric and try making it into something… I know, there are some not so great bits around the arm holes and I didn’t use interfacing or whatever on the neck etc., but I don’t know how to use it! I’m still learning!
I had no formal pattern to go by, not that I have ever used a pattern or know how to read one anyway! Instead, I measured myself and added a fudge factor and made my own pattern. This is the result and I’m happy!
I promise to do even better next time.
