INSTA STORIES

STORY NO.  1 - SEWING BEE 


We are sharing sew-stories on #symesterskapet's Instagram account.
We can decide what we like to share.
This time I wanted to make a jersey dress with a "twist" on the body.
I have chosen fabric with stripes to give it the right attention :)

  Here are my sewing room and my favorite place in our house :) 
           As you can see of the front part of the body I have made 
a little twist with the pattern.
     
The pleats are in place and I have decided to use  red fabric around the neck and at the bottom of  the sleeves.
The dress is based on 

   
I started sewing the front part, and thought it was nice with the stripes diagonally.

Then I had to sew around the neck, and I had to use one layer for interfacing as well.


                     



This is a dress I made earlier based on the same top, but with another skirt.

STORY NO.  2 - SEWING BEE

This is my newest TR Dress.                                                  We share Stories at Instagram for the Sewing Bees, and this was my second story.

I start with a plain body and draw the lines how I like them to be.

Then I cut the front apart and draw the lines on the fabric and add a bit to make the volume.

Then I'm making the drape at each curves to make a little rose.
This is how it looks like on the wrong side.
I'm using cotton voile for the lining.

Then the top i ready, and skirt to come.

 I'm drawing the lines for the skirt, 
and I want it to match with the lines for the body.



Dress is ready! 



STORY NO.  3 - SEWING BEE

This is my third Story on Instagram for The Sewing Bees :)

I have decided to transform these garments to make a dress. 
I'm going to use a shirt with long sleeves, a sweater and 2 cardigans.
 This is how I want it to look like when it's finished, but sometimes I change my mind..

First I made the decoration for the top.


 

I have used the bottom of my cardigan as collar.
The skirt is made of my husbands sweater, 
and I choose to use a double layer of from the cardigan as the hem of the skirt. 

Voila! Dress is finished!
