08 Nov Giveaway Winner and a Pattern Hack
Many thanks for the comments and tips regarding machine embroidery. It’s coming along very nicely and I’ll get there eventually.
Congratulations go to PAMELA GIANNETTO winner of the monogrammed towels giveaway! Please send me your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, November 10 or a new winner will be selected.
In the meantime I’ve begun a new dress. Below is the inspiration ~ another Oscar de la Renta from the current Ready to Wear Collection. Lovely isn’t it?
I’m attempting to recreate the dress via pattern hacking from the patterns in my stash. Several of the photos below have similar lines, though none feature the raised waistline.
I measured the length of the upper bodice from this Vogue pattern – one of my favorites.
Muslin pieces below …….
I’m seeking advice from all pattern hackers and couture sewists – Many thanks. 😊
