Stretchy Dress

On Saturday morning I had the sewing teacher from Raystitich, that I did the skirt and dress course with, come to the house for a sewing lesson. The goal of her coming was to get a bit more comfortable with sewing with stretchy jersey fabric. I haven’t attempted anything with jersey until now but felt I needed to get more use out of my serger. Moyna is a trained pattern cutter so I wasn’t utilising her true skills but she was still very helpful. I have a few Danish patterns from Minikrea that mostly use stretchy fabric. I wanted to make this one for Lady Fia…

It turned out to be quite an easy process and I love the final product…

I hope she will like it because I got all excited about this one and have a long sleeve version in purple and grey stripes on the go too.

I enjoyed learning from Moyna so she is going to come back in a couple of weeks so I can take my Raystitch class skirt block and make some skirt patterns. We hope to do a little lined corduroy number. My confidence is growing for sewing clothes!
