Here is the tale of #1 - the Flipperty Liberty Dress.
You know how you want to be really comfy at the airport, enabling you to have a few glasses of prosecco and then jump on the plane and maybe have another glass? Well, I made a modified Gabby to suit that purpose.
To modify the Gabby I:
- Left off the sleeves;
- Used the same binding technique used on the neck for the armholes;
- Chopped the dress off at 65cm;
- Did two rectangles the width of the Liberty (137cm) by 20cm gathered onto the bottom of the dress for a ruffle. I used a 3cm hem; and
- I thought about doing a 'bubble' hem but decided the lawn was not quite soft enough for it.
Anyway - a bit later this week I'll post about the dress I wore to the actual Sydney Sewing Social. What fun we all had!! I want to go back!
