Since I got frustrated with my silk issues (thanks all for the tips!) I wasn't sewing for more then a week. This weekend I thought I can take on my instant-gratification-easy-quick project. It is not finished yet.
So first the infos:
pattern: drafted after this how to. Thanks JJ!
time to draft the pattern: I think like 40 min - that is even a bit overdone.
cutting the pieces: like 20 min.
time to sew the pieces together: overall like 2 hours - I did it like three 30 min sessions.
cost: 2 euro for the knit on ebay. Thread I already had - the colour is almost the same as the ballerina dress. I love this colour. I have some boning which I will be maybe putting in - like 1.20 euro. I will use it according to this article to prevent the dress from riding up.
The cut pieces:
The dress so far - no hems and no boning.
The big question. I am not sure about the neckline. It feels to me that it is maybe to much to have a high neckline on a long dress with extra long sleeves. So square or high neckline?
