1940’s evening dress: a draping project 🖤🖤🖤 the final result of my independent study in draping this year! featuring tucked waistband, tulip sleeve, bias cut gathered bodice and bias cut skirt! i’ve learned so much this semester and am excited to transfer these skills into my work this summer ☺️☺️ (yes, it’s typical to only make half the garment! this is the muslin, it usually isn’t made in full at this stage unless it’s needed for a fitting)
My latest YouTube video is about my latest dressmaking creations and the highs and lows it involves .... I do love to make my own clothes but sometimes they don’t always come out as well as expected 😬 but this just makes me more determined to get it right .... this little vlog is all about this as well as my next planned make ✂️ and a few other tweaks ... it’s hopefully available to watch tonight 🤞🏻 #sew#sewing#dressmaking#memademay2019#memademay#youtube#youtuber#youtubevlogger#vlog#ilovetosew

I found this half-finished dressmaking project from years and years ago when I first bought my sewing machine, stuffed in the back of a cupboard. It's actually assembled a lot better than I remembered and about the right size so I think I'll finish it and see if it's wearable. Evidently all I've ever wanted to make are pink cord pinafores!
I made another top! This time a @sewaholic renfrew using a lovely jersey fabric from @backstitchshop , which I bought with my winnings from the Sewing Bee sweepstake. Thank you #CambsSews 😁😁😁
I chose the V neck version, which was rather tricky! I'm not happy with the neckband at the back as it doesn't lie flat. I was not going to unpick it after I finally managed a half decent job of the V neck though!!!
I'm not too sure about this top - I've decided that tops with a waistband don't suit me. Perhaps I'll grade out a size next time. Also, the neckline is too low for me, the next version needs raising.

New tutorial for the off the shoulder dress that I made recently! 🧵✂️ I was not super excited about this color and the fabric for this dress but now I'm super happy with the end result.
I still want this dress in red though.😂 When I'm allowed to buy fabric again I will make another in red. Let me know what you think!
