RETURNING TO THE SEWING MACHINE

IMG_7043.jpeg

Greetings fellow needleworkers. Trust you are all doing well. Today I am delighted to share one of my recent pieces, far from the usual crochet I do. Today's project has to do with sewing.

I know a thing or two about making a dress with a machine, although it is not my area of specialty I do know my way around. I used to sew long before I started crocheting, I learnt how to sew from my mom at a very young age.

The motivation for making the dress is because I couldn’t come up with what to wear for an event I needed to attend. So, I decided to sew something simple for the party.

My mom offered to help with the cutting of the dress, which I gladly accepted. I could do it myself but I was pressed for time and was wondering how to balance it all.

It's a pretty easy dress to make, the only elaborate things are the sleeves. I made a straight gown, joined it on both sides and added the sleeves which consisted of 2 big flairs.

I found out later that I had made the sleeves a little too tight. It was supposed to be an off-shoulder gown but I ended up not wearing it as such because it was too tight for an off-shoulder.

The half-cut ended up coming a little above my breast as a result of that. If I had tried it on before the day I would have noticed but I didn't so I had no choice but to use it like that and fix it after the party.

I don't know when next I'll try out anything sewing-related but I think this one turned out okay.

This is a good one. This is an upgrade to your needlework and it although crocheting appears to be your area of strength.

Using sewing machine looks like am easy thing, but I have tried it more than once and I just can't get the machine into action. Lol.

I think the hardest part of sewing is the aspect of cutting the cloth material into nice shapes.

Well Done

You are right, crocheting is my area of strength, to me sewing is more tiring so I rarely do it. It was relatively easy for me to learn sewing though but it is not something I enjoy.

I think the hardest part of sewing is the aspect of cutting the cloth material into nice shapes.

I know right, most times my mom help with that part.

Thanks for your feedback!
