One day, maybe in the not too distant future, I’ll get back to writing a blog that isn’t just an occasional report on something I finished. But today is not that day. Today is a day I squee gleefully about a sewing project that has been a long time in the making.

Your dress is truly lovely. I was a prolific sewer many years ago and even made my own designs. However I was too much of a perfectionist and stopped sewing altogether. Dont fret if its not quite right and take a few shortcuts. Just enjoy your lovely creations even if they’re not quite perfect (your packet looks fine to me!)
Cute! Love that color on you.
I was thinking about sewing a Hinterland Dress with French seams and stumbled upon your blog – how fun! Your dress is just lovely and lemony-summery 🙂 I hope you’ve enjoyed it this year with the many warm days.
I have plans to make a 3/4 length sleeved Hinterland in tencel for the fall, and it’s a good thing that I took the time to make a toile, because the shoulders were pretty tight on me. So, I learned how to do a broad shoulder adjustment from this brilliant website: https://mellysews.com/shoulder-fitting-adjustments-when-sewing/ and it seems better now. So satisfying to try something new, isn’t it?
I haven’t gotten to the waistline gathers yet, but I am tempted to try the technique on this blog to finish the seam: http://www.southernmatriarch.com/2010/03/french-seams-with-gathers.html
