I think its nice to blog about sewing mistakes, as we all make them and someone out there may be able to help. I also learned a lot from making this dress, so even if it is not as I imagined, it was worth it.
I made the Day Dress by the Avid Seamstress and I have to say I really like the pattern. But, after much hesitation I made the mistake of cutting a size too big and only really realised this once I was too far into the project to easily remedy things. Playing with the side seems is just not going to work here, I need to do a lot of unpicking and taking in to get the fitted look that would do the pattern justice and as an intermediate sewist, I have to admit I am not entirely sure how best to go about it.
But, I still quite like the dress I have made and until I find the time and patience to alter it, I think I'll just add a belt and go with the loose fit. I should also say that this is the first sewing project I have made using my new overlocker and I love the finished edges!
