This year I decided to take a dressmaking class, and this blog is to share with you my creations.
As a beginner, I was given a list of easy patterns, and I chose this pattern. I am making the "B" style.

I didn't know much about fabric when I started this class, so I picked the fabric based on the colours and design. I chose a polyester fabric, navy with flowers and butterflies on it. Initially I wanted to buy black with red rose design cotton sateen, but it was too expensive (first my first dress anyway).

I have been to 4 classes (have my fifth class tomorrow) and so far I have learnt how to trace and cut a pattern, understand different fabric, and learnt how to iron!
Last week I had some fun with bias binding!

Tomorrow I will be sewing the binding on.
I'll let you know how I go!
