1# Summer Sewing Project: Simple Summer dress

Sunday morning, usually people choose to wake up late in the morning but not with me, I always wake up more early than everyone at home on Sunday with some reasons. One, since I do blog so I always spend my Sunday morning to pour it all my ideas into my new post and prepare to learn more about blog (morning is a good time for me no distractions from my baby) and I felt I have more extra time to manage my housework before everyone is waking up or even I could do exercise or anything without any distraction or give any distraction to other members of family.

So for this time, I do my sewing. I have many sewing projects that have been postponed for a long time and I need to finish it. Since I had bought 2 patterns basis for making the summer dresses for my girl, it was almost 2 months ago. Then, this time is a good time to try it out the pattern (this is my 1st time to buy and use the real pattern to make dress for my girl), usually for the pattern I always looking for the FREE Pattern that offers by other Blogger friends or anyone who posted or shared it freely on the internet.

but yes, it gives any different when you buy and when you have it Freely, with the free pattern usually you just have one size only for sewing dress and when you buy the pattern you could use it for multiple sizes without doing any recalculate to get the multiple sizes.

I was bought those pattern on Tissue Reine in Marché Saint Pierre, Sacre-Coeur. This shop is kind of my favorite shop also that provide many kinds of fabric and there are many choices for fabric with child themes (oh my gosh!! It’s always cute and make me want to buy it all).

For the price of fabric in this shop Uhm, for me quite high for the motif but I think it’s normal because they have many motifs different and cute (if you found any cute motif for the little baby or girl dress you can come here to take a look) that you can’t found it easily on other shops except online shop.

I was bought the pattern Burda kids 9375 level easy with size 18 months old to 6 years and Burda kids level 9420 level super easy with size 2-7 years old each pattern had 3 type different that you can choose as you want and the instructions very simple and in many languages.

So, for this time I started with the level super easy first as my warm up on sewing, Hihi. I try to make a very simple dress for my girl. for the fabric, I use the fabric cotton that I bought in the market with 1 € /meter (wow, so cheap!! In the fabric shop you couldn’t have that price except there is the moment when they would like to finish their stock or when it’s discount period / SOLDES).

For the quality of the fabric for sure, it’s a bit less than you buy in the shop but not bad for me who just beginner in sewing, it’s better to have low-cost fabric to sew them :p and for the motif I (actually my hubby) choose the big flower.

So, for making this dress I need almost a half day because I need to have a pause break, even I was went out for one hour to accompany my hubby to find his tools for his D.I.Y (he needs to put the bathroom door in its place as since we moved the door hadn’t been in its place cause we change the system). Then, for the time I can say around a half day, that always happens the small problem with the machine and its also spend more my time to fix it.

Hopefully, for tracing the pattern from BURDA’s paper into my pattern paper, I already have done it a day before so for that day I just need to trace it again the pattern paper into my fabric. So far, I don’t have any big problem with that, just the small problem of the fabric that I couldn’t be seaming it properly and I don’t have special machine (It will be my gifts for next occasion :p ) and I forgot to add more centimeters into my pattern before I cut my fabric for seam allowances, because of that the fibre of the fabric had been out and it made not really neat result.

But, as overall the result not bad all, my girl really love it and she said “princess, princess!!” and seem I’m not wrong to choose the fabric, that is really light and very match with the summer.

Have a nice day and Happy day everyone 🙂 KEEP Creative and See you next post !!
