My sewing projects

Currently making: Shades of blue dress

Even after all these years of sewing I still find it terrifying cutting into a fabric that I’m madly in love with and have paid way too much for. This Hugo Boss wool suiting was one of those fabrics. I conquered my fear last weekend and cut it, and luckily all the pieces seem to fit together so far. I’m using a new pattern that I’ve never tested before. It’s still unclear whether it will look like the sketch, it all depends on how the different fabrics behave when sewn together.

I love mixing different textures. The dark navy fabric that I will use for the trims is a poly viscose blend.

I’ve used fusible interfacing on all raw edges since the fabric is quite loosely woven and ravels like crazy. I definitely recommend using lot of interfacing for any fitted, tailored style. I know a lot of people are apprehensive about using interfacing but if you find a good quality one it will actually make the sewing easier.

Can’t wait for this one to be finished!
