This week's Iron Craft is Orange. Yes orange. Out of all the colors we could pick they picked a project with orange and not something I had any ideas for the works. Actually I just completely an orange sweater refashion prior to the release of the project details. I cursed. So I had to come up with something. I searched my craft stuff for orange, what did I have? I found orange polyester, a sherbet chiffon, and orange embroidery floss. Thinking about my options I went for the orange polyester. I had delusional dreams of making a fun bright dress that I could accessorize with fun colors.
I chose McCalls Pattern M6460. I had enough fabric and thought I would try my hand at turning this into a semi-fitted dress. I cut a 12 and decided to do a smaller seam allowed which lead me to problems later on....
Here we go! Cut the fabric!
Here is some pictures in action while I was sewing. yes I added a bright yellow zipper. I thought it would be fun. Plus I had it on hand, it was a gift from another sewer. It was not hard to sew but some of the instructions seemed unclear to me. Like putting in the zipper on the dress. And the binding for the top of the dress.
Then at the end the brightness of the dress I needed to shorten it to add some life to it. So I cut off a bunch of inches. Here is my end dress...
On to the next iron craft challenge! Glad orange is out of the way :)
