I have been wanting to #sew a tuxedo inspired dress for awhile now. Because of @Carikim, I was able to bring my imagination to life. I want to thank Cari for sponsoring this project. If you ever want couture sewing inspiration, I encourage you to visit @carikim Instagram’s page. My muslin mock ups are usually a mess but I love visiting her IG especially for her pristine and beautiful #muslin work😍. Thank you Cari for inspiring me and for your support.
This project will have a special focus on the welt pocket I created out of the matte & sheen fabric I sewed the dress with. I created the welt pocket with a shiny satin fabric contrast to the main body of the dress. It would also match the lapel and the custom satin buttons.
And here is how I created the single welt pocket. Have you ever sewn a welt pocket? Feel free to share your tips and tricks:)
Thank you for visiting & I hope you have an EXTRAordinary day!
