How To

Spring Fever Sundress

For a fun spring project we decided to create a breezy sundress. We stumbled upon a McCall’s dress pattern that looked fun and the pattern called for three yards so off to MyFabricDesigns we went to choose the fabric.

There are so many choices from all of the amazing designers at MyFabricDesigns.com. And, if you do not want to use a premade design you can upload your own for a truly custom design! Naturally for spring we thought it must be a floral print! Going through all of our options we ended up choosing a beautiful design, In Bloom, by Maria Bogade at Wundergarden.

We just couldn’t pass up the fun whimsical feel of the design! Once the fabric design was chosen, next we had to choose which type of fabric would be best? Sundresses scream COTTON! Of course at MyFabricDesigns.com there are 11 cotton fabrics to choose from and we decided on a woven and selected our organic cotton sateen!

It only takes 7-10 business days to receive your custom printed fabric and we were so excited when it came in – it’s so soft and has such a fantastic hand. We knew we had made the right choice for our sundress.

Next was to iron and block the fabric! The fabric was printed perfectly on grain making the blocking process quick and easy. Next we cut out what pattern pieces were needed and laid them out on the fabric to get ready to pin and cut out!

Once the fabric was pinned on grain we cut out the pattern pieces. When all the fabric, lining and interfacing pieces where cut out it was time to start sewing. We followed the patterns instructions and ended up with a beautiful sundress! We did the final finishes and clipped any stray threads and pressed all seams for this final look! Isn’t it lovely?

    Did you wash the fabric before cutting out?

      This time I did not. However, we manufacture and produce all of our own fabrics to insure fabric quality and color stay!
