"Puzzle" Dress



   

This is another technique I had to try by Shingo Sato.
It was a lot of work sewing all these pieces together, but it was worth the effort!
As you can see there are no side- or shoulder seams for the top.
I started with sewing the upper part of BurdaStyle pattern #107 05/2016
and draw the pattern lines on the top as you can see.
I had to sew all the corners very carefully to get the best result.
I choose to use the skirt as the pattern shows.
I like this pattern a lot and have made a blue/black Dress,
and also a geometrically Dress earlier.

  2. Hi there,

    This dress is absolutely amazing. Can you tell us more about the technique you used to get the pieces together so perfectly.............did you use very small seam allowances?? Hope you don't mind me asking. The precision is superb.

    1. Thanks a lot for such lovely compliments Marysia! Yeah, I used rather small seam allowances, approx 7mm, then I could follow the sewing machine foot..
      If you have a look at TR cutting school at FB,then you can see a lot of nice techniques :) Cheers!

  3. Wow, what a great job! The high contrast between the black and the white fabrics really highlights the lovely geometric design you created and your sewing was superb.
