Sew-Along Finale

I finally finished the sew-along dresses. I am definitely doing this again! I enjoyed seeing the other participants’ dresses in each stage of their construction. I learned a lot from others and had sew much fun. 😉

Day 1 was cutting fabric.

Day 2 was constructing the skirt and doing the hems.

Day 3 was to make the straps.

Day 4 was to make and attach the ruffles.

Day 5 was to Shirr the bodice.

This was my first time shirring fabric and it took me a while to figure out how to do it on my Brother machine. In fact, I may do a little tutorial on shirring with a Brother in the future!

Now the final photos are due and there are 4 prizes to win. Fingers crossed!

Here is my final entry photo collage.

  1. The dresses are beautiful…and so are the little ladies!
    I really hope you do a shirring tute as this is something I want to learn. I don’t have a Brother machine, so hopefully I can adapt the instructions.
    Thanks for sharing and my fingers are crossed for you to win!

  2. Oh my goodness Breane! I love your fabric choices. and the girls are precious in your dresses. You are an AMAZING sewist! come and look at the little swimsuit coverups I am doing on Bibisews!

  3. Beautiful! You’ve only been sewing for six months but have fearlessly accomplished so much! I’d love to see the shirring tut. I want to learn how do that!
