The Dress with 18 Pattern Pieces
I don't know that I've ever sewn any garment with this many pattern pieces. Eighteen, to be exact! The pattern doesn't look too difficult, just time-consuming with all the pockets and top stitching. I'm excited to start sewing.
This dress will be made for Ellen, my 12 year old daughter. She liked the dress from the first time she saw it in the magazine. I am making the size 140 lengthened to a size 170.
I'll try to update as I go. : )
Oh, the dress is design # 35 from the 4-2008 issue of Ottobre--the "Helmi" dress.
