Just a good steam press and the final hook & eye at the top of the zip to do. So love this French Gypsy dress by Sew La Di Da, made for the monster from a light weight denim we found at Fabrics Galore. I did make a calico toile first and with the alterations made on that, unpicked and used that as my pattern.
I discovered just before I needed to insert the zip, that my machine does not have a concealed zip available – AHHH!
Managed to get the zip in, but think lapped zips may become my default method. There was one minor change to the pattern, I used bias on the bottom of the sleeve.
The denim was a little tricker to use as bias, overall am super happy with the result and the monster adores it! So great all round.
The pattern works brilliantly, true sizing and the pattern instructions are easy to read, have photographs to help make things very clear. If you haven’t tried a Sew La Di Da pattern do, they are a lovely British brand! Have a wonderful Bank holiday weekend!
