Happy New Year everyone!
With the benchmark of a new year I feel a bit ashamed at asking, what happened!?The Plain Pattern Project kind of teetered off the far end for mostly everyone. I get it, we all get busy, but I tried my darndest to keep it going and finished my three dresses. Did anyone finish?
Perhaps I was not the best hostess for the project. I did try to encourage as much as I could. Even hosted two giveaways? Is there anything else I could have done, or was I just a victim to the tide of people with busy lives? I think the ladder.
Well, it's water under there bridge.
With the positive view of the philosophy of the PPP, I think it can be an ongoing sewing tenant. Take a look at those plain patterns every once and a while. Appreciate them and study the craftsmanship of them. I can't tell you how much I learned from this exercise.
I made my three dress for the PPP and although I used the same pattern,
each dress was a challenge all its own.
Dress 1: A dress as close to the original pattern.
I made this first one out of linen and I didn't alter the sleeves.
Its a good fit, but I wish I had raised the neckline a bit more.
Which is what I did on the second dress.
Dress 2: Vintage Seersucker
This version of the dress I made from some vintage fabric I had in my stash.
I had to do some piecing, but it turned out great.
Dress 3: My Halloween Dress.
This one made up real quick and easy.
I used my Catlin buttons and even did bound buttonholes. Turned out great.
I learned a lot from this project and plan to do more PPP garments in the future.
Did anyone else complete their PPP?
Anyone else plan on doing the PPP again?
