I finished my first commissioned sewing project!
And look, it fits! That makes me incredibly happy.
In addition to the dress, I threw in a couple fun surprises. A little singed fabric flower on a clip:
And a drawstring coin purse:
This dress had a lot of hand-sewing... the bodice facing around the sleeves and waist, the sleeve bindings, and the placket were all hand sewn:
|See the little stitches on the seam line?|
I like how the bodice looks almost as nice on the inside as it does on the outside:
Leslie came to pick it up today, and she was very happy with the dress, so I'm happy too.
It feels very good to have successfully completed my first commissioned project. =)
Thanks for stopping by,
