|A bit ruffled, but not too bad for a day of wear and being transported in a suitcase afterwards!|
The pattern is actually pretty easy, three parts for the train sewn together, as well as the lining. I underlined with tulle, to make the train spread nicely and give it a bit of body! The sides are sewn into folds like this:
The upper middle of the train is also sewn into folds:
|It looks a bit lopsided here, but that was just because of the lack of space!|
Then everything is sewn to a waistband and closed with buttonholes and buttons. I felt that the lower part of the train is too plain, so I got some rose applications andhand sewed them on. Not my greatest pleasure, but it looked great!
Sewing pattern review
Once you get the hang of the pattern description, it is really easy! I needed a bit of time to understand how to put the pieces together but after that it was easy as pie. I seriously recommend this pattern as it is easy to make and adds a lot of fancyness to your outfit! Just be aware that you need 5 m of decoartive fabric, 5 m of lining and another 5 m of tulle, if you want a nicely spreading train! This thing eats fabric!
