Hey friends. I was just thinking to myself how lonely my sewing life would be without all of you. I have zero real-life friends who sew in NYC (and even among my long list of friends in the various Canadian cities in which I've lived I have few friends who count sewing as a hobby).
That's why our little online sewing community is so precious. And why I feel so guilty when I take more than I give. But here I am again, asking for help.
A friend of mine is asking if I can replicate a dress she saw online, and in the short time I would have (I haven't agreed to it yet) I think it would be prudent to use a commercial pattern rather than draft one of my own (which would demand time for measuring her and fittings, changes, etc). I did some searching this morning and have yet to find anything that would really work, though there are a few that are sort of reminiscent of this, her coveted dream dress:
She doesn't want sequins though, which is a relief, because I hear sewing them is a real pain. But it would be jersey of some sort...a box pleat along the neckline...side slit...and pockets (but those are easy to add even if the pattern doesn't include them).
So any thoughts/recommendations? Two patterns I can splice together?
