I’ve sewn a pattern twice. I mean I love making and re-making wristlets but clothing…clothing was a different beast. I usually make costumes or dresses that have a specific purpose, not just to be worn, if that makes sense. So, I got my sewing dare to be a repeat pattern user.
My first Tiramisu dress was okay. I mean, I went for subtle, but this second dress was going to be different. I wanted to go for something else. Finding the perfect fabric wasn’t happening. Then I saw a double sided jersey at JoAnn of all places. I feels super soft in the store and after two washings. Be forewarned, it shrinks like nobody’s business. I bought 2.5 yards and after the two washes in cold water, it shrunk to 2 yards. That’s some serious shrinkage. I wonder if it’s gonna shrink more. Guess I’ll have to see.
The fabric is a polka dot on one side and a stripe on the other. I just used one side for the bodice and the other side for the skirt. I wonder what it would look like reversed.
I had to wear some sort of covering cos it’s still winter and still pretty cold, even for a 40 degree F day. I have some wedges I’m gonna wear with this dress in Spring and Summer.
What do you think?
