Red Sheath Dress

Here's the new project I'm working on. Of course, it's on a limited time schedule...

McCall 2401

I selected the v-neck but sleeveless- not an option they gave but easy enough. It required a FBA from the size 10. I used an invisible zipper (see below). My Elna/Janome Concealed Zipper Foot made this zipper PERFECT! How did I ever live without it.

Now, this muslin thing kept me out of trouble but what a headache. 3 muslins later and this is what I ended up with. The darts still don't look like they are positioned correctly but it is all a learning experience.

I got the Elna tuned up a few weeks ago and it seems to be leaking oil onto the fabric (arghh).


  1. Looking forward of pics of the complete dress! Welcome to blogland from a fellow PR'r. I got a chuckle when I opened your blog and saw the title.....I am an RDH, married to a DDS :-)

  2. I'm still learning how to make the pictures appear! That's really funny.
