Elise Dress, Sewing Pattern, Sew-A-Long, Final Countdown!

So who is still with me? Have you finished your dress or top yet? Have you been waiting till all my posts are finished so you can decide which new features you want to incorporate? Were you waiting on some AMAZING fabric to arrive?

If you've been sewing along with me each day, your skirt is complete, and all you have to do is gather and attach it to the bodice. You're nearly done!

Don't forget that the back bodice piece is wider than the front of the bodice. But you want the front of the skirt and back of the skirt to have equal fabric. This means that the front half of your skirt is more tightly gathered than the back. If you were to gather equally around the entire skirt, you would have too much fabric across the back of the skirt and not enough in the front.

If you haven't started yet, don't worry. This dress really is a quick sew. You still have time to sew one up and enter to win a $50 fabric shopping spree from Allegro Fabrics! To enter, post your pics to the album in our facebook sewing group so that we can all admire your creation. You've got the whole weekend to complete your project and share.

...and dont forget to find some awesome shoes... life is too short for anything less than epic shoes...
