The blue dress

This is the blue dress based on the ottobre pattern
I changes the sleeves like this
buttons from stash
and chopped the dress up and made side panels, longer bodice pieces, the closure is on straight grain and I´m really pleased with the result. All the seams but the princess seams are made french and then topstitched
French seams are my new favourite. I sew the pieces together 1 cm wider than finished result laying the pieces wrong side to wrong side, then I trim the seam, press it open and turn right sides together and sew 1 cm from the edge and the seam allowance is included. It can be left like this or topstitched.
