Big Apple : A Nine Months Clothes Project

I bought this book three weeks ago and always pop up on my mind. With adorable models, stylish design, ready to trace patterns and clear step by step instructions, i really fall in love with this book. Wheter you have basic dressmaking or not you still can make the clothes on this book.

This dress is one of the 25 fun making clothes project. I made for nine years old baby. This time i'm not use ready-to-trace patterns from this book, but i try to construct my own pattern. This stylish dress can be finished in no time and it's also eay to sew.

Fold the fabric, and placed in the pattern upon it. Cut one front, one back, ant two strips for the hem flounce in plain-orange cotton.

Gather the back side and front side

Gather the flounce strip, make a ruffle, so it has the same width as the bottom of the dress.

With right sides together, attach the gathered strip to the bottom edge of the dress.

Ensure, the gathered are distributed all the way around

Carrefully bind around the armhole edge with bias binding, and sew it in place. Repeat with other armhole.

Then, bind the front and back neck edges with bias binding. Ssstt..actually i made a mistake for this step. I should bind the neck edges first then the armhole edge.
