I really wanted to sew something the other day-nothing too complicated or mind boggling (my mind is boggled enough with being 6 months pregnant), so I pulled out this mint fabric from my sponsor The Ribbon Retreat and some eyelet trim my sister in law gave me, and whipped up a little Charlotte dress for the new baby!
Only I didn’t cut the back out correctly, so I winged it and added an exposed zipper-tada! No seam allowance needed.
I think it’s so sweet and I can’t wait to try it on the newest little Miss around here! Not to mention I must have a subconscious pull to coral and mint/teal right now-it fit right in with the nursery colors!
I serged the back of the dress bodice and skirt like so.
Then I hemmed the bottom up-making sure that both sides matched up! The bottom looks off but it matched up. Just a little wonky cutting I guess.
Then I sewed one side of the zipper to the edge of the dress, I lined up the edge of my serging right next to the zipper teeth. You’ll need to use a pull apart zipper for this kind of thing…and wow crooked stitches! My sewing machine didn’t like the metal teeth and kept hopping around.
