Faux Fur and Small to Large Sew Along: Amy Smith


Thank you, Amy Smith for sewing along with us in the Faux Fur and the Small to Large challenges.

“For the faux fur challenge, I spotted an awesome vest, dress and trousers that I have used to make a new funky dress. I used the front panel of the trousers and their fabulous pin tuck to create new self drafted side panels for the dress. I then used the waist band of the trousers and so be of the faux fur to create the short sleeves for the dress. A fur trim along the base of the dress added a little bit of length as well as complimenting the faux leather and patterned fabric of the dress. I kept the featured metal zip at the back.”

I loved the shape I was able to give the original dress by creating the side panels, even if it was one of my biggest challenges as I needed to create the pattern for the side panels myself.”

Beautiful job Amy! Your daughter looks great!

“Here is my entry for the sew along challenge this week. A pair of children’s leggings that have become the sleeves for a top for my daughter. They were the perfect size for the Elliedactyl 5k top, and the waistband was used to make the neck band! I particularly love the black stripes down the sides of the arms!”

Another great idea, Amy!

Thank you for sewing along with us!!!
