WIP Wednesday: Fashion Star Dress

One of my goals for the year was to sew myself a garment. So I’ve decided to take the plunge and I’m going to sew up a dress!

Materials for dress

The dress is from McCall’s new Fashion Star line and it claims to be an “easy” pattern. We’ll see if it’s true! To be extra careful, I bought muslin to make a practice dress. The real dress will be made from the red Kona fabric on the bottom.

Since this is my first real garment, I am praying to Saint Martha to help me and guide me, in this my hour of crafty need. Or something.

  1. Good luck. Looking forward to seeing the finished dress.

  2. Oooh, good luck!

  3. Good luck! Red would be such a fabulous color on you.

  4. What a great idea to have a practice run with the muslin. The pattern looks lovely.
    Good luck. Ali x

    So cool!! The dress looks really nice- I hope you are successful!

  6. It looks amazing. If you really want the finished article you are inspired to work all the way through any tricky bits. I can’t wait to see how you go.

    I hear that I am a saint…but I’m no Martha.
