Joyful Sweetheart Dress

Hello friends, hope you have a happy sewing day :)
As promised in my previous post, here is the finished Joyful Sweetheart dress for Magam June challenge.
Fabric : 2 yards of printed cotton poplin.
Pattern : BurdaStyle Vintage Modern Elizabeth Gathered-Waist dress size 34 modified to a sweetheart dress. I did the wearable muslin but I modified the bodice again to princess seamed. Also, the dress has facing, gathered skirt, side zipper and finished with narrow hem.



The process was a little bit tricky because I have to copy the bodice from my wearable muslin, remove the darts and make princess seam bodice for both front and back - as shown in the pictures below.

After I had all the pieces, I sewed the bodice and carefully clip the seam allowances and sew the raw edges using the zig zag stitch.
Then sewed the shoulder right sides together. After that, I prepared the skirt by gather them all and attached it to the bodices. Followed by sewing the right side of the dress and inserted the zipper in the left side.
I fused the facings with fusible interfacing and attached to the bodices and sewed the bias tape around the armholes. Then I did the last step, narrow hem.


After all, I really love this dress and happy with the fit. Hope I will wear more this summer :)

Happy Sewing!

Love,
+Hana Velvet Ribbon
