Frills - Definitely a Learning Curve

This beautiful aubergine fabric had been lingering in my sewing box for quite some time before I decided what it's use would be.

Having been trawling Pinterest for inspiration I noticed a tutorial on how to hem around a curve.  Hmm, maybe I'll give that a a try I mused.

The pattern is from Spanish pattern magazine Patrones and is a fitted dress with three frills on each side.  There are no darts as the frills are encased in sections of the dress.  The frills were the challenging part of this make and I have added a section under "Tips and Tutorials" to show how to hem a curve more easily - something that I previously struggled with.

The dress is finished off with a small gold button on the neck and accessorized with a wide gold belt.

Now - where to wear it!

Happy sewing
