The "SGWP" (summer goth wardrobe projekt) finally started
A basic dress is an absolutely must have to me. And so i am starting with this. The pattern i am useing is pattern 43 in Simpicity 2/14. Its about 3/4 length and has no sleeves and a simple v-neck. So it is perfekt to wear in different styles and combine with lots of accessory.
The fabrik i am useing is a lightweight black cotton. At the fabric store i got 4 meters priced down the half, so it is enough to make a second something out of it. Mabe a skirt.
As always i started with making the pattern out of paper. And make a first placement on the fabric to see if it fits and i have all pieces together.
So here is my 2D paper dress
After this i pinned the pattern down and cut everything out.
Then i begun sewing everything in place. And it took me longer than i expected, so i was not able to finish the dress in one afternoon. (This is why i decided to make a two part post out of it) The top piece is ready. Only the skirt part is missing.
Next time i will show you how it looks finished and make a little look book on how i planed on styling the dress.
