Freya's School Clothes: Zipper

September 26, 2010

Freya's School Clothes: Zipper

I am very proud of how Freya's dress turned out.
I think I sewed a good zipper.
I am no longer afraid to sew a garment that has a zipper.

I bound the hem in brown polka dot fabric (same as sleeves) rather than just turning it under.

I chose the wrong color of zipper though.

Freya's next dress is going to be made from fabric as old as the pattern.

This pattern looks a bit complicated.
We'll see.

Cheers to a new week.

  1. oh it's lovely! the print is great. and the zipper turned out really well. learning how to sew a zipper suddenly opens up a whole new world in sewing, don't you think? i used to be so scared of them!

    the old patterns are adorable. they just don't make em like they used to! :)
