Hello

I’m Samantha.

Since I could crawl, I’ve been helping my grandmother pick out fabrics for her quilts. When I was tall enough to reach the presser foot, she taught me how to sew. For the last three or four years, I’ve been exploring the world of sewing on my own, navigating the perils of my Junior year in high school along the way.

Sewing is something I love – the fabric, sketching, sewing, pressing, (seam-ripping), the hum of my Singer. Most of all, I love watching the ideas in my head come to life on my dressform. I hope you love it too :)

  1. I love the b6094 dress , I am actually planing on making my bridesmaids dresses with this pattern . how many hours did the dress take you and is making 6 of them in a 7month time frame cutting it to close. I sew at an intermediate level.

    1. Hi Katrina!

      The B6094 dress is definitely an intermediate project. It’s straight-forward, but it’s the kind of pattern that shows how much experience you have in the finished result, if you know what I mean. I’ve made it twice now and had remarkable success with fit both times, which dramatically cut down on the time they took. I think whether you can make 7 in a 6 month time frame depends a lot on how much time you have to dedicate to it, and if you’re going to make each one individually or make them in a factory-like system (the latter being faster). If you have enough sewing experience that the actual construction won’t be an issue (it’s a relatively straight-forward pattern, like I said), then I think having at least a few hours a week dedicated solely to the dresses would be the minimum, hopefully with more time. I think it’s definitely doable!! And I think the pattern would make a beautiful bridesmaid dress! I wish you the best of luck!
