V8469, 'Blair' & new Gütermann

DEADLINE! Christmas party is one week away! I only had tonight's class to get the dress ready for the zipper next week! And I did it. I didn't have time during the week to do any sewing because I went camping at Wilson's Promontory over the weekend and had lots of work and family stuff going on.

In tonight's class I got a lot done: bodice gathering, midriff (and belt) stitched together, serged, skirt gathering, skirt stitched on to the bodice, serged. 

The dress fits fabulously but I need to take it in at the back seams. I am loving it so far! Doesn't the dress look gorgeous on the mannequin? And I have decided on the name 'Blair' :)

Next class I will hopefully get the zipper done during the 2 hour class and finish the hemline at home in time for Christmas shenanigans.   

The girl in my sewing class was kind enough to sell me some of her Gutermann thread that she had in her stash. I got all of them for $13! Bargain! I'm sure I will find fabric to match the thread, hehe.

Thanks Kat! 



  1. @marysews Hi Melanie, if you are a beginner like myself, I suggest you make the sleeveless option (view B) of the dress. The sleeves took me 3 classes (aka 6 hours) to get perfect. I blogged most of my progress with the V8469, if you filter using 'V8469' you can see all my posts and tips :) Can't wait to see your V8469!
