  2. I appreciate so much how you take the time with very clear instructions on how to sew this sometimes pesky fabric im so intimidated to work with. Thank you!🙏🙏🙏

    1. Not easy at first but worth it!! Don’t give up, you’ll get the hang of it, as I did :))

  3. finger in the nose 😂😂 never heard that before

    1. Haha! French phrase! Means “piece of cake” 😘

  4. I actually didn’t understand anything but the dress looks so pretty

    1. Glad you found something for you in it XD

  5. I was wondering if you could alter this to make it long sleeved?

    1. Yes totally. You’d have to tinker a bit, maybe use a garment you already have, or another pattern

  6. Really nice 😊🥰
    But what sewing machine do you use please?

    1. I use a very old Pfaff Tipmatic

  7. How do I find the patterns for the dress?because I really want to make the dress but I can’t find a pattern for it, we’re did you get your pattern from?

    1. Hi there! You can find my pattern here https://www.etsy.com/listing/962950072/bodycon-drawstring-mini-dress

  8. Omg thanks

    1. You’re welcome!

  9. Ohhh my god 😍
    You are amazing you explained it in simplest wayyyy😍😍😍😍
    Loved the video I am going forward to subscribe your channel 💥💥💥💥

    1. Best compliment, thank you!! Glad you’re here 😘😘

  10. This is super usefull, thank you so much

    1. So glad! You’re welcome

  11. Damn!
    You’re so good❤Just gained a subscriber.

    1. hehe thanks!!!

  12. Question- you made the straight stitch (without backstitching) in order to mark where the hem would go? Then remove it? Is it a necessary step and if so why ?❤🙏😊

    1. @isa in stitches oh okay thank you very very much !! 😊❤

    2. I baste it because it’s faster (thanks to the lines carved on my sewing machines)

    3. Hi! Absolutely not necessary. I could have taken a ruler and I drawn a line 2 cm from the edge (to respect the seam allowance which is 2 cm wide). I bet most people don’t bother measuring to respect those 2 cm and fold just like that.

  13. What kind of fabric is best to use please? Specific names eg french Terry, viscose would be appreciated xxx

    1. @isa in stitches thank you very much! I’ll get looking xx

    2. Jersey is best, 95% cotton, 5% spandex for instance, like my fabric. It’s got to be stretchy, so spandex is a must.

  14. is 1 yard of fabric enough to make this dress?

    1. Hi! Depends on your size! I’ve indicated the fabric yardage on Etsy, among the pictures: https://i.etsystatic.com/26063488/r/il/7df311/2931645258/il_1140xN.2931645258_ae7f.jpg

  15. This turned out lovely! ♥️Great idea to use the side seam allowance as the tube for the ruching straps/ties! ✨⭐️

    1. Yes it’s detail that makes a big difference I find! 😘

  16. can we have shirt pattern next? its so hard to find a great pdf pattern of woman oversized shirt especially with notched collar 😩 yours are so nice and detailed 😄

    1. Not on my list at the moment but I’d like another project with a nice poplin… so pleasant to wear! We’ll see!

  17. Lo amo!! Definitivamente lo haré 💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽

    1. Oh Antonia! Thanks sweetie!

  18. Que lindo! Parabéns.

    1. Merciii

  19. How can this pattern be altered to make the dress minus the drawstrings?

    1. @Sheree Murphy You’re very welcome!

    2. @isa in stitches thank you for your reply, and thank you for your tutorials ☺️

    3. Remove 1 cm off the outer edges of the pattern (there are 2 cm of seam allowances, if no drawstrings then we just want one). Then sew the sides with 1 cm of seam allowance. That’s it!

  20. Loved it❤️

    1. thank youuuuu

  21. I also love the new name!

    1. Thank you 😄

  22. Oh, she’s a genius! It looks so comfy and easy to make. I will definitely make this for my friend she would absolutely love this.

    1. Yes it’s both! I was surprised myself!
