Having regained my sewjo, the question becomes “what shall I make?”. I ordered some fabulous cotton lawn, thinking I would make another Roscoe Blouse but when it arrived I changed my mind. The fabric needed a different project.
I decided on the Kiomi dress from Lotta Jansdotter’s book. I have made one before so dug out the pattern.
All set, I followed the instructions, sewing one shoulder first then applying the binding.
I machined sewed the front of the binding but I tend to hand sew the back to prevent the stitches being visible on the outside of the garment.
I decided to make a belt, since without it this dress would be extremely unflattering on me. I also took up the hem by a good couple of inches.
The overall impression is pretty pleasing. I know there are some ‘snags’ but I shall keep those to myself!
