I've been sewing on and off for almost a year now, and while I've made a few skirts and some home shorts, I've always wanted to make a dress. To me, that would mark the start of a whole new chapter in my sewing chronicles.
However, even though it's been quite a long time since I started, I still have no idea how to work with zippers, mainly because I don't have a zipper foot (I may also have the beginner's fear of zippers too). Which was why I rejoiced when I came across these lovely tutorials from The Pineneedle Collective!
crop top tutorial and no zipper circle skirt tutorial and wore them together to make a dress. I don't think you can really tell! And the great thing is that I can wear both pieces separately as well.
The fabric is a medium weight knit I scored from Spotlight during the Boxing Day sales for $7 per metre. The best thing about being petite is being able to make a dress from just one metre of fabric! I wanted to make a peplum attachment for the crop top though, but I was slightly short. Dang!
I ordered a zipper foot off Ebay a few days ago so I have no more excuses, really. Hopefully I'll be able to master sewing zippers in no time!
