I have a large pile of patterns (so to speak as most of them are digital). I keep track of my patterns and try to sew a new pattern every month, as the pile of patterns keeps growing. Every time I am persuaded to buy a pattern and before I have sewed it I have bought a new one. Anybody else has this same problem?
I came across the Groove Dress from Madeit Patterns and thought it would be the perfect fit. I bought it on Saturday morning and sewed the first Groove dress within 24 hours. That has never happened to me before. Sewing a pattern so quickly! I love the dress, it is different from the other dresses that twirl and it flows so nice.
One thing I was struggling with was the large amount of fabric, or I should say the wide piece of fabric that you need. I almost always sew from my stash and I do not buy large pieces of fabric when I go fabric shopping. I prefer pieces of 70 cm at the moment. This gives me a challenge when I start sewing (I love this challenge by the way). Inspired by the Groove Dress from Inspinration I decided to cut the Groove Dress in several pieces so that I had enough fabric.
Fabric: Lions from Lillestoff which I bought at Cas en Nina last year during our sewing weekend for the yellow lion dress and scraps from other people at our sewing weekend for the blue dress.
