Completed: Truffle Dress

March 26, 2012

Oh hi there. I finished the latest dress for the Colette Handbook Sew-along: The Truffle!

Originally I had big plans to modify the crap out of this dress. In fact, I was installing the zipper on my modded version when I decided to scrap the whole thing. It was cute, but it was not a Truffle. I already feel pretty guilty for being a featured seamstress for the Pastille, since that dress wasn’t truly a Pastille at all. I came to the conclusion that I’m not really learning anything if I don’t actually follow the book. Duh, I know. I learn the hard way!

So, I tried REALLY hard to read every single step word for word instead of skimming and going with what made sense to me. I just can’t follow directions on certain things! But, my way is clearly not always the right way. (…that was hard for me to admit!) So, in the spirit of the Sew-along, I give you a tried and true Truffle with no mods. …okay, okay, a Truffle with as little mods as I could possibly go without!

I may or may not have gone overkill with the buttons… Psh. Like that’s even possible!

I will post more in depth pictures soon including finished inside seams, the minor mods I added, as well as my trials and tribulations.

Thanks for taking a look!


p.s. Does anyone else suffer from directional A.D.D? Anyone who’s tried to give me verbal traffic directions knows not to ever again. My brain just shuts down.
