Making of …

making the copper dress pattern
This should have been my first machine sewn piece. That I dared to take on such a huge creation with my first sewing machine efforts was thanks to my dear friend Mel-Stichfest (she makes the most wonderful rococo gowns!) ;-)
But it wasn’t that easy after all. The easy pieces were done quickly, but the others like the jacket weren’t exactly beginners-stuff. So the dress was lying around in pieces for a long time.

The pattern is from Burda (7880) and the cost of material is around 100 EUR.

And here are some pictures of my very first day sewing on this dress together with Elyriata :-)
