All in a day's work... WIP.

I love Twitter.

Thanks to one of my favorite tweeps, who is a fashion student, I got this awesome confetti-like polyester.

She uploaded a photo of the fabric and I knew immediately that I had to have it. I went to Brunswick Fabrics today and found it in the window and bought some to make a dress. My favorite tweep told me to use cream-like colour thread and zipper. Thank you Amber :)

Brunswick Fabrics: $5/m polyester.

I couldn't wait to make something with my new fabric so I decided to make another V8469, which is the dress I am currently working on at dressmaking class in the black and rose print cotton sateen.

The polyester is slippery (this polyester is softer than the polyester I used for my first dress), I found it a bit difficult to cut the fabric, but 5 hours later I finished the bodice. 

The sleeves, bust gathering and darts turned out perfect the first go! I'm so happy I didn't have the same issues with the sleeve again.

I probably should have lined this dress, but I didn't buy any lining, so I made facings and did everything the same as the cotton sateen version.

I need help to finish the arm hole... gotta wait till next class...

V8469 Bodice.
Tomorrow I will stitch the skirt, then after next week's class, after I finish the arm holes, I'll finish it off and put the zipper on. I made a bow out of left over fabric, so cute.
