Fuáil is the Irish language word for Sewing. This is my place as an amateur seamstress on the web - a diary or a scrapbook - where I record my projects, my designs, my attempts at dressmaking and sewing. I would love to gather around me a community of fellow dressmakers that are also based in Ireland... and some further afield too.
It says "beginner" - I think it's for an advanced beginner!
I love Colette's pockets; they're perfectly shaped.
The fabric was bought in Stoffmarkt in Bielefeld in Germany recently. It's 100% cotton (Baumwolle).
It's a wrap dress. But wraps at the back as opposed to the front.
I liked the pattern but might prefer to make a lining for the top part instead of all the facings. And I think the seam in the front of the dress makes it a bit apron-y so I might use one piece here next time.
I like this dress. Murphy Sheehy stocks Liberty prints which might work well for this dress. I think it's probably nicer with a contrasting fabric for the belt.
