Sewing A Bespoke Garment: The Unmentionables Sew-Along
In this series we are going to look at how to turn a simple ordinary garment into a bespoke masterpiece! Shari will be showing how to add bespoke details to a few pieces from her Victorian Unmentionables pattern for 18-inch dolls.
In the first video, we will be adding a series of tucks and decorative stitching to the neckline of the the chemise and then finishing the side seams with a teeny tiny French seam.
In the second video, I will be demonstrating how to finish the hemline with a delicate lace edge, the Victorian way and then finish up the chemise with a hand stitched buttonhole.
In the third video, I'm going to show you how to add a functional and decorative embroidery detail to the boning of the corset called flossing and then finish it up with hand stitched eyelets.
In the fourth video, I will show you a new way to layer ruffles on the petticoat.
These little details add a delightful elegance to my Unmentionables and can be used to make many of your favorite pattern designs bespoke. Use your
imagination, I'd love to see what you come up with!
