~Liesl’s Dancing Dress for an Anniversary~
A customer bought the Liesl dress pattern to make a dress for the anniversary Mass and evening of celebrations of the pictured couple. They enjoyed a ballroom dance lesson after the Mass and cake!
She writes,”Thanks for this pattern. We enjoyed working on it. I was a total beginner and my sewing teacher looked at me like I was crazy when I walked into class with this. But we did it in eight lessons. I used two layers of lightweight cotton. (I knew I could not handle the chiffons). It worked really well for me as a beginner to use the lightweight cottons. The under layer was almost hot pink and the outer layer was a very pale pink and put together I thought it looked very nice. The only other change was that I added an extra layer of trim ribbon at the waist.”
Can you believe she is a beginner seamstress? If “Liesl’s Dancing Dress” is one of her first projects, I’d say she’s off to a pretty good start! The sewing is impeccable, and everything from the curved yoke and circular hem to the fluttery sleeves are perfectly sewn. It’s absolutely beautiful! Excellent work!
