Once again, Colette Patterns have not disappointed and delivered a gorgeous pattern with dead easy-to-follow instructions that anyone (and I mean anyone) can do one of these. Fair enough, it is aimed at beginners so this is to be expected but I have struggled with so called easy patterns before so I thought it's worth the mention.
For my version of Ginger, I initially though of adding piping, just like the first Ginger Sunni, from A Fashionable Stitch did, but changed my mind quickly after. The fabric is a solid, simple teal and I wanted something I could wear dressed up or dressed down, depending on shoes and accessories. I thought a touch of lace would be ideal and decided to add it to the waistband. It was a easy job to do and I followed the same rules to those when doing my Crepe dress.
In terms of seams finishes, I decided to trim them down and finish them with my machine overlock foot. It's a very neat finish!
Isn't this a contradiction? Has this happen to you? Keen to know.
