A few of months ago, I had the opportunity to guest post
on one of the my favorite blogs, MeSewCrazy
in Jessica’s New Year’s Re*Sew*Lution series.
In case you missed it, this is what I shared with her readers:
I had the lavendar fabric in my stash, and with some mustard broadcloth, made the “racer” bias trim and flower embellishment.
You could really do any sort of embellishment with this dress, so many possibilities would be cute.
(It is a hand-drawn pattern and it scanned a bit wonky, sorry.. Still usable, though!)
**You can make or buy bias tape. I wanted mine to be the same fabric as the embellishment, so I made mine. Super easy. Here is a great tutorial. **
**I used the easy method for putting in sleeves. Feel free to set them in if you wish.**
**Here is a tutorial on how to attach bias tape**
I chose to sew the flower down, even though I would have preferred a fluttery flower.
I did this because of washing.
I didn’t want to have to iron the flower every time the dress gets washed.
