But despite my lack of outgoing projects, my desire purchase large quantities of fabric was only slightly diminished. So when Fabric.com has one of their clearing out sales, and I have coupons, and I feel the need to do therapy shopping, well, you can imagine what happens.
Dictionary.com actually has an entry for the usage on the fabric, so I guess it isn't strictly an incorrect spelling, per se, just non-traditional. I harrumphed a little, but in the end, I decided that if it had taken me that long to notice, no one else ever would. I valiantly resolved to press on.
purchased this a while back. I picked it because it seemed simple enough to knock off in an afternoon (and it was). I sewed up view A. Despite its easy nature, this pattern did have its odd aspects. The facing had darts, but the dress didn't; it did, however, have gathering that the facing did not.
As I previously mentioned this dress was pretty easy. I would say it is a good pattern for a beginner. The challenges include:
- darts, but in the facing only, so they don't have to be perfect,
- gathering, but only the small amount I showed above,
- facings, which I never thought were difficult, but some people do,
- and inserting a zipper, which is something a sewing enthusiast is going to need to master early on anyway
