#118 Autumn dress by Thread Faction Studio

The #118 Autumn Dress* from Thread Faction Studio is here! Patterns from Thread Faction Studio are clean and classic patterns. The #118 Autumn Dress is a dress with ¾ sleeves and a higher waistline. 
The gathered waistline is sewed with clear elastic. This was a first for me. This video was suggested in the test group and it has a perfect tip: leave a long thread at the beginning of the fabric so you can pull the fabric from the back. I can definitely recommend this video if you are sewing with clear elastic.
I sewed two dresses during testing, however after the first version the dress has changed quite a bit. The final dress is the green dress. The red dress was the first version of the pattern. As you can see one of the changes was the length of the dress. The first dress was quite short, but can still be worn with leggings underneath.
What I like about the pattern is the clear finish of the neckline. In the pattern you wrap the binding around the edge of the neckline, so no seams on the inside of the dress. If you buy the pattern before Sunday evening August 3rd you get pattern #103 High Waisted Shorties for free.
These dresses were perfect to try out my new coverlock! It is just perfect! The neckline with the coverlock looks so much more professional and is easier than with a twin needle.
Fabric: Red fabric with triangles comes from Megastoffen and the green fabric was a coupon at Cares Stoffen.

  1. Both dresses look super cute. I can't see the finishing on my mobile phone, hopefully I'll see the dresses live soon.
