Today i finished my first sewing project, a girl’s dress.
The dress is a bit big for my daughter the measurements i used was a sample dress that was given to me in my sewing class.
It may look good but dont let that deceive you, i messed up the sleeves.
I did not realize when i choose the fabric that it was designed by the talented Sandi Henderson. I had no idea that her fabric was available in Oman. When i asked where she got the fabric the from i was told that Aunty S buys her fabric from Dubai. I wish i could get more of this kind of fabric to work with i love the designs.
Today Aunty S came to me to see how i was doing and taught me how to make the sleeve, she actually sewed it onto the dress to show me how its done. She is a real darling unlike N1. I wanted to tell her that i am not very happy with N1 but thought that this being my 3rd lesson is not the right time.
I have until the end of the month so i will see how i go and i am still on the look out for a new teacher,i think i’d prefer a one on one. Shimmertje informed me that the Seeb Women Association will being sewing classes next month. I will give them a call this afternoon to find out more about it, will keep you informed.
Let me know what you think of the dress, i have bought some fabric to try and replicate what i did thats if i can remember the orders i was given lol
JUST AN UPDATE: The dress fits my daughter perfectly
